"Until the mid '90s, this was the only route at High Profile. Start with the angling crack and continue up the past-vertical wall. Stout."
Start left of the direct variation, Stuffed Wolf and climb moderate ledges. Make either a slow, deliberate transfer or a wild huck out to the positive rail out right, and continue up the feature until you once again need to transfer right into the crux of the route. Do a series of finger locks and then a mixed, burl/core move using an undercling, then all that is left is holding on until the top.
Park 8.8 miles up the canyon in a pull-out on the south side (marker 263). Cross the river and head up and left to the obvious crag.
Easy 5th class climbing will get you to the ledge with belay anchors and enough room to sit down comfortably.
6 bolts and fixed chains with steel carabiners at the top.

This route is as good as, if not better than, its more famous counterpart Stuffed Wolf. It is also solid 13a if you ask me, the crux up high is technical and hard. The route is also a solid 15 feet longer as it starts lower. A CCC must do!
