Description 

This is the old Hank Caylor project as noted in the Fixed Pin guidebook. Start with a few finger locks and a crimp out left and gain some insecure jamming or double gaston action on decent feet. Plug a piece and execute the difficulty crux to a jug, then move up on decent holds and place a creative piece or two and embark on the second crux to the tufa-esque feature and the jug on top. Short but very sweet!


Location 

This route is up to the left of Marry Me, Becky. It is the obvious seam to the two bolt anchor 40 feet up.


Protection 

If you're launching up this thing, then you can probably figure your own gear, but here's what I used...1 #0.4 Camalot, 1 #0.75 Camalot, 1 #0.5 Camalot, 1 #2 Camalot, and a #4 brass RP. There is more room for gear if you are creative.

There are rap bolts at the very tippy top of the cliff that can be accessed by hiking up and throwing a rope and rappelling. If you're looking to do this route and want to practice it before, you can rap to the anchors and set a TR. It's a fun little route that should see some traffic. It's cleaner than most of the Quarry routes, so go do it!

This route deserves an R rating or at least a PG-13+++. Just my two cents.
