Description

This route starts off the boulder/ledge to the right of "My Goose Is Loose".
The Randy Vogel JTW guide shows this route, in the photo, following the dangerously loose, rubble filled, left facing corner. That's not the route Just left of this trashy corner is a shallow corner/groove with faceholds. Follow this to the top.

Protection

Some stoppers and small cams (1" max) can protect this easy climb.

Short, but still has fun moves. Made the anchor in the crack above before noticing a couple of bolts above Kodiak. Feb 6, 2014

Avoid the left facing super blocky, rubble filled corner and take the more obvious right facing hand size crack. Gear anchor with several options but larger 2-3" pieces and a long runner is golden. Dec 29, 2013

I started down and right of the actual climb and went up a separate hand to finger crack and then transitioned left into the route. It was kind of fun and added another 8 feet to the climb. There are a lot of rocks just sitting there in limbo waiting to come down on the belayer, so beware. Despite the choss it was actually fun. BTW, there was no spider web there yesterday. Mar 6, 2011
