Topo showing A Little Nukey (5.9PG13). I would give this route 5 (out of 5) stars. There are a total of 6 pitches. I would recommend this route for a competent 5.9 leader. A few spots seem just a bit runout but nothing too severe. Note - the Moser topo in the Sequoia Kings Canyon Guide shows pitch 2 going right of the roof. Some creative trickster has now moved the bolts so it goes straight over the roof (5.9). Actually an improvement in the quality of the climb. Be sure to bring lots of long slings (and biners) for the upper pitches. You'll want Tri-cams for the "holes pitch". Plan on about 5 to 6 hours from car to car. I would say the climb is definitely 5.9, not 5.9-.
