A fun route if you have done sasquatch a million times! Step right off of the sasquatch ledge, trend right toward double cracks, straight up offwidth to tree, left out onto face to top. reachy 10a move protected with brass nuts (maybe an alien), very cool, and a fun alternative. A touch trickier than sasquatch, but not as sustained.


standard rack, handful of brass.

This is a fun, though sadly, overlooked route. Give it a shot if you are waiting for Sasquatch, or to tick another route on teh wall, but bring some brass, or maybe a black Alien (I used that). Too bad it doesn't get climbed enough to keep the grass out of the moves down low. If it was anywhere than next to Sasquatch, it would be climbed more. At the top, angle left, and climb the slab to Sasquatch anchors. May 23, 2005

A fun layaway sequence down low leads to a boring offwidth that climbs like a gully. This in turn, leads to a fun short face. Too inconsistent to be good, but worth doing. Aug 2, 2005

Brass really aren't needed. I used a Blue Wild Country Zero, and a Purple DMM, and like a 6 wall nut, maybe a 5, to protect on the lower cracks. All good pieces. Exciting lead. Jun 30, 2006
looking bushy these days, add one bottle of roundup to the rack! Best to link directly into littlefoot for a nice long pitch. Jul 14, 2007

I believe the initial "barn door" moves as described in the guidebook were for when the anchor was not present. The crack above takes standard nuts or a green alien down low, opening up to a nice #0.3-#0.4 at the top before the final opening moves.

The crux is short and ends at a glory jug. Sew it up or gun for it!

The climb is definitely worthy and a great alternative if Sasquatch has a queue. Sep 1, 2014
This climb starts off the Sasquatch belay ledge, NOT the newer rap station by the tree. The "Barn Door Moves" are trending right up flakes into the three cracks in this picture. Sep 12, 2016
