Description Suggest change

This climb is on the BIG boulder about 2 minutes up the Gem Lake trail (on the NE side). Leave the parking lot going towards Twin Owls, and it will be the first BIG boulder on the left. It's very obvious. As one stands under the large roof (NW side) looking at the bolt ladder, you will see a [licheny] crack going up the far left side of the rock - [voile]! There she blows! The start is very steep and will test your [Loweball] skills. When the crack runs out about mid-height, continue via horizontal breaks (mostly hooks) to the anchor. Despite the veggie appearance, this climb is a lot of fun, a good warm-up for some of the harder Lumpy clean aid routes. It's about 30-35 feet long. This climb went clean on the first ascent - you do not need any pins or heads. Don't think it's seen a second?

Protection Suggest change

You need 1 set small Aliens, 1 to 2 of the first three Loweballs, 1 set of HBs (including smallest), 1 set of nuts, 1 #2 Camalot, 1 set of hooks - including a large Fish hook. The anchor has 2 good bolts.
