Description 

This is a short, little climb with great stone. The hardest climbing is right off the ground, and this is tightly bolted (every 4 feet), making it a good route for a kid to do their first lead on. There is also a second "pitch" to this. It is a low angle slab with three bolts that is 3rd class and about 25 feet.

Location 

On the far right side of the Puoux, hike another 10 yards right of NoName 01 to find this route in a gully where you can tell this is an old watercourse. It's easiest to approach by staying low and going through the trees below NoName 02.

Protection 

5 bolts to ring anchors.

Someone can correct me on the rating on this. All I can say is it was really easy (free soloed it in my approach shoes).

There are also two short bolted lines another 20 yards to the right and uphill of this route. They are both 3 bolts and about 20 feet tall and climb in a little overhang feature.. I have heard them described as one star routes but haven't climbed them myself.

The first ascent is Evan Winn and Megan Cerise. I saw this little route as a good way to access Calico and Twister and a non threatening place to teach multi pitch techniques. There are rings just above the lip and then rings at the very top of the rock where the dirt starts again. It is really just a way to climb in and rap out of the wash without scrambling through the eroding hillside.
