Description

This is a very neglected gem! Just right of Little Mecca is a clean, wide wall with a single route marked by a large bulge up high, this is Little Red Badge of Courage. Almost 2 routes in one, this sports a very technical, thin crux down low (as a lot of Shelf routes do) and then a great, pumpy, jug haul out the roof above. There is a good stance just below the roof that lets you set up your sequence before launching out. Generally this has very good stone and never has a line at this one. It is worthy of a try if you're looking for something different in this area!

This climb starts out with the technical crux right off the ground. A shallow pocket for the left hand and a sinker mono that is underclinged for the right is used to setup for a big move to a sharp crimp. The upper bulge is passed on big holds with some cool moves grabbing the arete. Sep 29, 2003
