This is a fun beginner climb. If you want, you can do a fun arm-bar and knee lock, and I felt like there was a bit of chimny movement in there too.

Beware -- this route was given it's name for good reason. ;) Bring a mask and anticeptic wipes.


This line is on the East facing side of the crag. It is to the right of the arret on the South-East corner of the crag.


There are two really good bolts for anchors at the top that are accessible by hiking up to the top of the crag. I recommend using an anchor that extends downward quite a bit if you are going to top-rope it so that the master point hangs in free space. Otherwise you'll get a lot of rope action rubbing against the over-hang.

Watch out for bees and wasps! And hornets too!
