Description:

From Sherman's Guide: From the ground behind trees next to table #37, climb up and right to a black water streak that leads to huecos and a bulge. Climb the bulge on the right side up to easier ground. Belay here at a hidden crack with two bolts. The second pitch follows Cakewalk to the top. A more popular variation start is just right of the trees; climb the first 15 foot think crack of Banana Patch (nuts are handy), then move up and left past a bolt to the black streak.

4 out of 5 stars First multi-pitch

I'm not sure if we did the direct, we didn't have a book, so we glanced at someone's found the start and just started heading up it. It certainly wasn't 100 ft and a single pitch. I had a grand time though, but the walk down made things last a bit longer.
