This is the furthest right route in the Brown Cloud Rocks area. It is to the right of Thelma and Louise. The name may not be correct. I forget where I got the name. It's a route to do if you've done all or nearly all the rest.

Hike around to the back to put longer slings (48") on the 3 bolts (2 have weird hangers). Climb up and perhaps slightly left of the rope. There used to be a super fragile block, but it's gone with a light foot tap. If you stem back to the rock to the left at the crux, it'll feel noticeably easier.


This is the furthest right of the routes in the Brown Cloud section. It is on the chunk of rock to the right of Louise.


3 bolts on top (2 have weird, sub-optimal hangers).

The "weird" hangers on two of the bolts are just links. If you are bothering to bolt, I don't know why you don't spend a little on real lowering/rap rings. The route is somewhat amusing if you have done everything else in the area.
