Climbing Area Index / Crag Y / Take My Tuna (5.8)
Directions:  As you walk along the base of the broken rock to the right of the Red Walls area, you eventually will encounter a nice-looking little dihedral, facing left, with a finger crack in it. The crack looks like it would be a classic, if only it were longer. This is the start of TAKE MY TUNA.
Description: Scott Hobson has a long story about a poker game that inspired this route's name.
    Pitch 1: Lieback up the short corner, then climb easier rock until it is reasonable to venture out left onto a steep face with cracks. Above this face, follow your judgment to the top. 90', 5.8

Gear: Standard Rack
Descent: rap the route
History:  July 7,1987 - Scott Hobson and Larry Hamilton
