Description

The route climbs a very thin flake/crack with difficult entry moves. It is strenuous to protect taking Lowe Balls, RPs and small camming units. Once you turn the bulge the upper slab/crack eases significantly. There are no fixed anchors. The excellent initial moves are probably 11c once you figure them out but are a very hard flash for that grade.

Location

Ms Fannie le Pump is located about 40 feet up and left of the Huston and Aid Crack buttress. It is the left of three cracks and is located in a steep, left-facing dihedral.

Protection

Lowe Balls, RPs and small camming units.

VERY tough warm-up... crux right off of the ground and quite an A$$ kicker at that. Aug 9, 2015

Ken Duncan's description sounds like the route that I did back in July 1977. There was a left facing dihedral with a very difficult entrance problem stem. Oct 7, 2004

The 11c crux moves are the first 5 or 6 moves of the ground in a very weird, awkward and strenuous thin dihedral. Sep 4, 2004
I recall a tight, steep dihedral with a thin finger crack. My notes say "solid 5.11c, RPs for gear". There is a 5.8 crack to the right, and an easier (5.6) crack right of that; both of these cracks lead into the rock scar. Sep 10, 2002
