Description

This neat little pitch is moderate hands to an awkward overhanging bulge crux at the top. It's a good route but not great due to the rock quality. Give it about a dozen more ascents to clean up and it'll be a must when heading to the area.

Location

PT is located about 20 feet to the right of Wrist Ranger and about 3 feet next to a prominent chimney.

Protection

Pro is hands, 2-3 inches.

Good route - characteristic of the 'short but sweet' nature of a lot of the climbs in this area. Sep 19, 2016

Felt easier to me too. Slightly easier than Wrist Ranger, 9-. You can actually plug an excellent #4 in this leaving unobstructed jams below and above. Great route. Jul 24, 2013

This route seemed pretty clean as of Summer 2011, I guess it's had enough traffic. Was very fun. I totally surprised myself when I lead it clean - it was in our guidebook at 9+ which was at the top of my ability. I totally struggled up Wrist Ranger to the left which was rated at 9-. Must have just been the right size for me? Jul 18, 2011

Yesterday on this route, I would say the rock quality was pretty good. One wall near the bulge was crumbling a little, but nothing to complain about. May 18, 2009
