This fun route is located about 125 feet left of Blood And Cuts, and 70 feet right of the descent gully. It climbs an unusual groove/chute which ends just below the top of the lower tier. Lots of stems, chimney, and other moves, that make you feel like, well...a hot dog in a bun. The crux is the transition from the groove to high angle josh friction. 2 of 5 stars. Walk down the gully.


4 bolts adequately protect this route (a fixed pin is gone, but not really needed). Bring 1.5 to 2 inch cams for belay anchor.

Did this route around 97/98 and the pin "was" still there. Slipped just before the 2nd bolt, fell and pulled the pin landing on my butt. I got a kick reading Todd's story in the new JT Classic guidebook by Vogel. He talks about this Italian pin that he used on the !st ascent. I have some special plans for that pin..... Feb 13, 2012

Funky route. Surprisingly engaging, with pretty clean rock. Falling while moving up to the second bolt is not advisable, as it might lead to hitting the ledge. But those are probably the easiest moves on the route anyway. Once the second bolt is clipped, the route is totally safe the rest of the way. Feb 22, 2011

Interesting moves exiting the groove. One maybe two stars out of five. Dec 11, 2003
