Description

Another seven bolt route but this one has steeper rock and smaller holds. The crux is getting to the last bolt and if you fall from a balancy mantle before standing up expect to take a healthy fall. Bolted anchor/rap on top (shared with Loose Lady).

Great moves on this route with a little fear factor but overall it's safe. Not done nearly as much as it's neighbor to the left, but for the grade a must do Josh face climb. This climb gets sun most of the day so it's an excellent choice on those cold days, but not the best choice when warm as this climb is somewhat temperature dependant. Three stars out of five.

Location

From the Real Hidden Valley parking area a marked trail leads west to the base of Houser Buttress. Scramble up to the base and you will find this climb 15 feet right of Loose Lady on the right side of Houser Buttress.

Protection

7 bolts, bolted anchor/rap (all 3/8")
