This line ascends the wide crack system just right of Hamburger. To locate, look for a 7 foot high pointed boulder near the base. Climb to an overhang and style through the offwidth crux to a belay on a ledge. Continue left to a large tree for another belay. From the belay, climb a left-angling crack to a narrow ledge then traverse right (R section - 5.8) and climb up to another ledge. Move left to a tree and dart for the top.
Descent: Rap from tree or walkoff
Stays Dry:
Owner: NFS

Pitch one is one of the coolest offwidths around. It starts out as a wide crack in a left facing dihedral, that switches to right facing part way up. Or maybe it's the other way around. Anyway, the switch was the crux. The only time I can remember coming across this exact move.

Photo: A cool June day, 1979. E. Pearsall is leading the third pitch (5.8) of Last Day. Pitch one is the money (5.10) offwidth with a perplexing crux at mid pitch. Larry Day, bearded fellow almost hidden on the bushy ledge @ left.

This route provides a big time, old school, adventure. If you're not put off by 5.10 offwidth you should give it a try. Three very cool pitches.
