Description 

This route takes the fingers-to-tight-hands splitter just left of Big Guy. Begin with some soft and sandy climbing to gain the ledge at the base of this striking crack. Work through some bomber finger locks with good feet (red aliens/0.5 camalots), a short section of .75-camalot size, followed by tight hands (very tight #1 camalots) through a curve, finish on soft rock.

Location 

Thin splitter in the middle of the right-facing wall immediately left of Big Guy. Shares the same soft start as Big Guy.

Protection 

Doubles though #1 camalots.

A pretty nice climb. Occasional footholds and good stances for rest keep it from being 11+.
It is too short to be classic though, and it feels even shorter than it actually is due to all of the easy climbing at the beginning.

Was there this last weekend - plaque definitely says Brown on Butter. I struggled with the .75 section, offset and a little tricky, but overall a great little route and easy to protect so it makes a decent "warm-up".

there seems to be some sort of "retro-plaquing" movement. i have noticed quite a few plaques on routes that didn't have them before, ie coyne crack, supercrack, the 5.10 twin crack corner that is 50' left of scarface, this unnamed crack, etc. not a huge fan of it.

As DTP states this is already listed as POP Quiz and is listed in the Idian Creek guide as such as well.

Yeah definitely off fingers to thin hands. Bring extra 1s and .75s
