Description

From the base of Talk Buttress, turn west. Baby talk climbs the left-most of the 2 left-facing right-trending cracks. It has it's moments, but digresses to a romp up bad rock, near the top. The 2nd pitch or 2nd half is a ridge scramble to the south to attain the down-climb at the notch. More of a means to a view than a route in it's own right.

Protection

Medium to small gear protects the 1st pitch, and the traverse protects with medium to small also.

This is what happens when someone gets a wild hair and wonders, "Ya think that dirty crack will take pro?" The hardest moves (and this is a relative term) are all within 10 feet of the ground. The route may be short, but at least you have a ton of loose rock at the top. The second pitch is a ridge scramble with consequences, so we chose to use pro for safety. Oct 15, 2004
