Description [Suggest Change]
Squeeze up the offwidth, crux 15 feet up. Solid rock. Exit out the top and wander up and right to the top of the ridge on easy rock.
Location [Suggest Change]
0.6 miles past the Biege Siphon Tube is a paved pullout on the south side of the road. Uphill to the east lie several slabs with existing routes on them. At the very top, 700 feet up, lies a rock wall 40-60 feet high that slope up from left to right. This wall can be accessed by climbing routes on the slabs below and finishing with one of the routes on the ridge top. 50 feet left of the end of the ridge (30 feet left of short but sweet) will get you to Short but Squeezed. Getting down is best accomplished by rappelling off of the anchors at the top of Double O then rapping off of trees and rocks to get down to the road.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Large cams 3-6 inches. No bolts or anchors on top. Walk off back of the ridge.
