Chiquito Dome, “Jigsaw Puzzle”. In May, Conrad Van Bruggen and I also climbed this route just left of Cheeseburger in Paradise. Start on a smooth face leading to a four-foot roof 200 feet above the ground. A F8 pitch ends on a ledge (pins useful for anchors). Climb past bolts and then over a roof on a not obvious flake to a spectacular belay ledge on the edge of the roof. The next pitch starts with a F8 move and ends on good ledges. Climb an obvious book and some third class to the top. NCCS II, F8.
