DescriptionStan and Ollie follows a narrow dike that begins as leftward-trending, and straightens up fifteen feet or so off the ground. The straight up start is more difficult.
Start to the right, and gain a horizontal (so you're standing on top of the dike) about eight feet off the ground. Walk left and move up to the bolt; there's an opportunity for small gear to protect the potential ground fall here, but it's not great.
From the bolt, make a couple 5.7 sequences to gain a short, vertical, relatively shallow (deep enough for tricams, but some cams would be a little wide) crack. Fire the crack and belay atop the rock.
Walk off to climber's right.
Because of the relative ease of the walkoff and the proximity to Jumbo Rocks Campground (if you happen to be camping there), this is quite a nice place to spend sunset.
