Climb is about 5 feet right of Minnie Mum. The meat and potatoes is getting onto the second ledge. Use the small fissure and breaks to work your way up the face to the nice ledge above.


5 feet to the right of Minnie mum. Look for the 2 overhangs about half way up.


Small cams for the crux

I ended up backing off the first time after not being sure about the moves and not wanting to land on the not so cushy slab.
