Though not as juggy as its neighbors, Curly is a fun romp through a conglomerated face, with a nice ledge that will give beginners a good breather. NOTE: pro is scanty in the first 30' or so, so unless you're prepared to run it out on lead, toproping might be a better choice.
Starting just right of a pine tree next to the wall, climb through knobs and the occasional horn to a spacious ledge. Continue up the face to the top.
About the names: This is one of three undocumented climbs on the Burly Girls pinnacle that I found myself referring to as the Three Stooges. These have been climbed for many years, but I've not been able to find anyone who knows the real names for FAs. I don't like posting "unnamed" routes, so until I learn otherwise, they are Larry, Moe and Curly.
Starts about 15' right of Moe, 20' left of Burly Girls. Rap from the anchors.
Mostly small gear; slung horns will make you breathe a little easier. Bolted anchors.

Don't blow the moves past the first slung horn. Ground fall is likely. Great route and the retro bolt can be skipped also with TCU's and nuts above and below it.
