A very negelected gem! Just right of Little Mecca is a clean,wide wall with a single route marked by a large bulge up high, this is Little Red Badge of Courage. Almost 2 routes in one this sports a very technical,thin crux down low (as a lot of Shelf routes do) and then a great pumpy jug haul out the roof above. There is a good stance just below the roof that lets you set up your sequence before launching out. Generally very good stone and never a line at this one, worthy of a try if you're looking for something different in this area!

This climb starts out with the technical crux right off the ground. A shallow pocket for the left hand and a sinker mono that is underclinged for the right is used to setup for a big move to a sharp crimp. The upper bulge is passed on big holds with some cool moves grabbing the arete.
