Description

The crux come at 3/4 height, it involves leaving the crack and going hand traversing. On the FA I pounded a #2 angle in at the crux, I went back 2 years later and pulled it out with my finger (it even had a bail biner on it!!) Now a nice TCU fits in there. Its a GREAT "just got here, need to warm up" route.

Location

When you are driving down the Burr Trail there is a large obvious slot canyon on its West side (only one), just across the road are these crack systems.Flipper Babies is the left hand crack of the two similar looking side by side crack systems. Take 10 steps from you car.

Protection

#1 metolius to #3 camalot, maybe a sling. Replacement slings for the anchor might be nice.

Good route. Placements on the 2nd half of the route make it not ideal for someone breaking into the grade. Sep 20, 2016
