Description

Fat and Fuzzy climbs a blunt arete right of the bolt line. Start right of a short dihedral. The rock was solid, and the climbing was pretty fun, although a bit dirty. An abundance of good holds leads up the steepening face to the summit. The only difficulty was at the top where you had to step left because of the rope pull to the anchors. Not a bad route.

Location

Located on the right side of the Hole in the Wall area - just right of a bolted 5.11.

Protection

Can be top roped from a set of rap anchors above Larry's Project (5.11). A better option would be to use long slings or webbing to anchor off the spruce tree behind the top (quite a ways back, though).

Was out there on 09/25/2012 and found the route bolted. Must have been recently, and there was still drill dust under the shiney new bolts and hangers.

Anyway, the bolting was superbly done. Good clipping stances and well protected. 7 bolts (I think) lead to 2 Metolius Rap bolts. This is a great addition to this area. I normally wouldn't bother climbing this one up before, now it makes a fun warmup or beginner lead.

Well done to whomever put in the time and money to improve our modest climbing area. Sep 29, 2012
