Just left of "cheap lipstick" and slightly right of a crack. Better quality rock than the neighboring "cheap lipstick". Fun enough if looking for something easy, short and in the sun.

Mayr guidebook indicates 5.8 - that's a bit of a stretch.


Dirty slot corridor facing the road. Just right of hook bush.

Mayr guide - route 820


3 bolts - shares ring anchor with "cheap lipstick"

I didn't quite understand the bolt so close to the ground.

Since the PP girls can fly, they don't need any bolts!

We protect all the little people that can't fly.
AND we hand drill on lead!

The first bolt was placed low due to the poor quality of the rock. When the route was first put up there was alot of loose rock, especially in the lower section.

It's "Powder Puff" in the guide book. Actually this is called "Cheap Lipstick" in The guidebook and "powder Puff" is to the right. I'm so confused!
