A short, hard, sport route in the Stronghold? Tiny But Exciting is proof that they exist.

Delicately ascend featureless vertical stone for three bolts to reach the weakness found on the underside of the roof. Careful feet and powerful arms are required to transition to the right and eventually surmount the roof. Pull up using the generous jugs and engage a left leaning seam to the chains.

The climbing on this route is fantastic and varied. Other than the crumbly rock at the lip of the roof the rock is exceptional as well.


Located on the southeast face of Muttonhead (aka Sheepshit Dome), Tiny But Exciting is found midway up the gully between Sheepshead and Muttonhead. The route can be identified by the large low roof and the nearby green streaks. Tiny But Exciting is passed on the walk-off from Sheepshead.


Approximately 8 bolts to chains.
