Description 

This Route is Scary. All of the bolts are placed well, and it's not exposed or anything, it just takes some technical, balancy moves that feel very insecure and there seems to be a lot of rocks jutting out from below you. Luckily, I didn't fall, and I feel safe recommending this route, just something about it freaked me out a little. That made it kind of fun.

The route is the last one on the right before the steep, mossy gully with the fixed rope (which leads to the Crow's Nest.) It starts on some very steep jugs with a bolt just out of reach if you're 5'10". Climb up and left to a pretty good rest, you can stem to the rock fin behind you (The start to Little People, 5.10a.) From here climb up the smoothish face with some small crimps and a lot of balance to the anchors.


Location 

The far right side of the Hinterlands.


Protection 

4 bolts and lower offs
