Description

Great route that follows two finger cracks and some face holds up the face. Don't wander too far right or you'll be off route, as you would be on most routes at Devil's Lake...

Location

Just to the right of Tomb of the Unknown Homo on the South face of the South buttress of Elephant Rocks.

Protection

Standard rack, refresh me if this is wrong. It's been a while since I've climbed here.

I am also claiming the FA of this route. Again, with my partner Todd Trost (RIP) and circa 1985? I believe we dd something on the left corner as well called 3 Happy Larrys. Rating escapes me. Clay Erickson was also part of the FA party. #DLFA Nov 11, 2013

You're probably right Jay, but for some reason I have a special affinity for this route. Maybe it was having it shamelessly wired and goading some poor sap Boyscout leader into getting on it in front of all the scouts and watching him flail mightily only to be thwarted by its perfect pinky locks.

I think this route is too short to qualify for four-star-classic status. Dec 16, 2006
