Description

This seldom-visited little 'dome' hosts a few easy, short trad routes (none of the routes are longer than probably 70 feet, if that). Although it is included in the old-school online guide, none of the current guide books even mention this crag (maybe for good reason; it may not be worth the walk over there, unless you have a strong urge to get far, far from the maddening crowd).

The four routes that are listed in the online guide are (from left to right):
Short N' Sweet (5.7): A short low angle face leads to a blocky finish. Didn't look too interesting.
Left or Right (5.8): Fun mix of crack and face.
Look Mom, No Friends (5.7): A sweet fist crack, but sadly too short.
Look Mom, Friends (5.8): We weren't able to confidently identify this climb. At the north end of the east wall, there's a couple of possible crack or face climbs. Where a dilapitated wooden fence leans against the wall, there's a fallen tree just a little farther north. Left of the fallen tree, there's a couple of jugs that may be this route, but looked too short to be a real climb (anyone know about this one?).

Getting There

From the Sundeck Wall/Aspen Alley area, head due west across the slickrock for about 400 meters.

Could this be "Look Mom, Friends". We top roped it and I thought it was great, harder than 5.8.
