BETA PHOTO: Effigy Too and friends... - cragcam
Effigy Too is located just left of the bolted Crossroads. The crux is encountered in the first 15' of climbing and protection is a little bit tricky. The difficulty eases up substantially (5.8ish) after that. Gear belay.
Descent: walk off down chimney to the south.
This would be a 3-star route if it were a bit longer.
Pro to 2 inches, TCUs to protect the crux off the deck.

Amazing start. Bouldery but not too difficult. We found you can protect the crux pretty well with a #2 stopper. Once you get to the prominent crack feature, its just fun cruisin' from there.

Good route, definitley worth doing and not even close to 10b - jugs and decent feet means any 10 climber will breeze throught the lower section.

I definately agree with the rating as the first moves are quite bouldery. Above the difficulty eases quite a bit, but it still keeps your attention.

As mentioned above, a small stopper can be placed high from the ground to protect the opening moves (I clipped mine with a single 'biner). Be aware that you are in groundfall territory before you get your next piece, though the hard climbing is long over. Above this, the rest of the route is 5.8 max. No really small stuff is needed.

I always thought the start was a bit scary and the route stouter than its original 5.9+ rating
