Em Holland leads the first ascent of Little Miss S...


Start up a low angle slab to the right of Booty Pageant. For inexperienced leaders, a #2 camalot-sized cam is recommended to protect the moves to the first bolt. The steep slab move BEFORE getting to the roof is the crux... the rest of the route is just plain fun, as long as you don't fall doing the step-through. Some loose rock and grainy holds can be expected, this is a new 'Bama Hills route. Enjoy.


Located on the south-facing slabs of Hideout West. From the parking area, walk past the 3-bolt 5.6 Unknown route toward Snowball. Look for a bolted route crossing a right-trending roof/chimney/offwidth thingy. You're there.


1 ea 3" cam and 4 bolts.

Of the two routes on this rock, I felt this was the harder of the two. For me, the crux was the upper part of the route. I climbed it without any supplemental gear, but if I was bringing a beginning leader here, I'd tell them to bring some cams. It's easy enough getting to the first bolt, but a bad spot to fall.

Thanks for the route Bruce and Em!

This is a fun route but a bit reach dependent - my wife is only 5ft 5 and she had a hard time pulling off the slab onto the face. The slab moves felt like 3rd class to me - definitely not the crux. I agree with Josh that the gear is unnecessary but if you are going to place something a # 3 fits much better than a # 2 camalot. I placed it just because I could - I didn't need it to get to the bolt. Pulling that bulge/roof is crux 1 and again I agree with Josh that there is a 2nd crux higher up on the face.
