Description 

An easy 5th class slab leads to a ledge below a 3-4' roof (5.8) overcome by secure fist jams and mantling followed by a fun hand jamming romp (5.6) up to a large ledge with a three bolt anchor. A 60 m rope is barely sufficient to rappel from these anchors (tie your ends).


Location 

Southwest side of the northern most Little Tongue River crag. Located about 30' to the left of 'Off Wits'.


Protection 

Protects OK. Hand-sized cams or hexes. The easy lower slabs are difficult to protect.
