This climb is about 100 feet uphill (left) of "Pointy Little Devil" and about 20 feet left of "Little Gremlins" (see photo). It starts up an easy wide crack/groove for about 15 feet then angles off left and up on the face to the summit. Although the first bolt is about 15 feet off the ground, it is easy to get to going up the wide channel, then stepping left. The route is well protected with about 7 or 8 bolts and a 2-bolt chain anchor on the summit. A 60m rope is enough. Fun climb.
