This is a great route, if only for the upper pitches above Surfs Up Ledge. The best crack climbing we found over a week in the Bugs (except maybe McTech...).

Not a sustained route by any means, but three stellar granite crack pitches above the cool Surfs Up Ledge make it worthy. Easy to get lost on pitch three, why? Because everybody is doing it, therefore rubbing off the moss and lichen making it look like the obvious way (tons of tat left on a chockstone up there, yes we did it too!). So atop pitch 2, next to a huge slung pinnacle, move diagonally right along stacked flakes with tons of lichen on them vs up and left following the worn off corner. The three crack pitches are all equal in how fun they are...the final, even though rated 5.7, is as good as the first two in my opinion. The setting is exceptional out on the ridge/arete. Cheers.
