Description

Approaching Little Hunk's southwest face from the Echo Rock Area one will notice a large flake leaning against the main face, which is where this route is located.

Start off a boulder near the left arete of the flake and climb past two bolts, traverse right midway, and finish up past two more bolts and a bit of a runout to the top. Descend by rapping off anchors on a ledge atop the route. Please note - A 50 meter rope just makes it down from anchors atop a ledge.

While the rock isn't the best Josh has to offer, the moves are good and the position on the flake is unique. Overall, a seldom done but worthy route for those who like J. Tree thin face/slab routes.

Protection

4 bolts, chain anchor (all bolts are 3/8")

I had all kinds of trouble getting going on this route, probably nerves.

Took a whipper just before clipping the last bolt, momentary lapse of concentration I think. Dec 25, 2003

First 5.11 in early 80's. Pretty gritty at the time but solid 5.11. I remember the first bolt being a tough clip - about 12" out-of-reach. Jan 19, 2009
