Description [Edit]

p1:Climb the obvious offwidth to the base of a right slanting overhanging crack.
p2: climb the crack to a tree
p3: do a single 5.9 offwidth move and exit right to a walk off
pitches are short but sweet and the route is never in the sun.

Location [Edit]

if you are looking at muttonhead from the bottom this route is on the right side. It is visible from the decent of sheepshead as a dark offwidth looking cavern

Protection [Edit]

2#6,1#5,1#4,and doubles of 3 inch down to .5

I'm now hearing this was done in the late 80's/early 90's (if at all) Sep 22, 2008

Hey, I think I met you guys the night after you did this climb last winter. If I remember correctly you aided a bit of it. Has this gone free? Dec 2, 2008

Steeper and slightly harder than the crux pitch of Pissgums, but thankfully a bit shorter. I'd recommend thin kneepads, thick pants, and long sleeves, plus a tape glove for the left hand. There is some pretty loose and questionable rock on the third pitch that the leader must gingerly tiptoe around, be careful. 2 #6's will indeed make you feel a whole lot better. Jan 2, 2014
Andy's comment, "slightly harder" than Pissgums, given the entire number grade difference, is a testament to how burly Pissgums is. Jan 23, 2014
