Start on a platform of roots and dirt... Head up the smooth slab (crux) to a good flake... The climbing eases up and heads to the left to finish where the book finishes....

Perhaps this was once a good beginner route but i find the beginning to be very slippery and not fun for new folks... If you have a little slab climbing under your belt its not too bad... As with most pawtuckaway routes the years of TRing have taken their toll on the friction...

A good lead if you are just getting in to leading trad but know how to climb pretty well... The first moves don't protect but once you get to the flake its all good gear...


10-15 feet right of the book...


Small rack of cams and nuts... Or a top rope from big trees...

I've also heard this route called Almond Joy, and the one to the right of it called Mounds. Sep 26, 2007

Ladd, I believe Almond Joy and Mounds are on either side of these routes, one being 5.9- and the other 5.9+, not sure which though. Dec 4, 2010

The start of this is really thin, I definitely wouldn't call it 5.6 but the rest is really fun! Apr 6, 2014

when i forst climbed it 20ish years ago it was still thin but there was friction so it did feel 5.6... these days with that marble polish, yeah, its not easy to get established... Apr 6, 2014
