Description

Climb the chimney/slot/gully immediately left of "Feeding Frenzy". This has no fixed anchors, but there is an easy walk-off around either side of the MBA Buttress. It is an obvious but forgettable line.

Protection

Standard gear rack.

This route was "ok" but nothing great. It says in the Haas, Schneider book to bring a #5 Camalot. I brought one but did not place it. My biggest cam used was a #2 Camalot. There are places for a #5, but it is not necessary. Mar 22, 2013

David, why on Earth would you quote Hubbel's guide as some kind of authority? Hubbel has always named cracks that were never climbed. His first book to the Platte was called The Brown Book of Lies. No FA parties are listed usually. Whenever you see names involving butts and defecation, that a pretty good hint that Pete's making up stories again.

Please remove your comments about Alan. He died three months ago. You're presenting yourself as a guy who likes to kick people when they're down. Jul 12, 2008
