Dirty and uninspiring, even by Stover Standards.
P1 - Climb the cracks to a dirty ledge. Walk left about 25 feet to a belay tree at the right edge of the Cramped Thumb face.

P2 - Climb the left-facing corner directly behind the tree to the ceiling. Clear the ceiling (old piton above) and continue up the grungy face to the top.


At prominent vertical cracks (one very wide) on the right side of the Cramped Thumb face and just off the trail.


Standard Rack. PG13/R.

The middle of this route is pretty good. The rest of it is probably a safari (ie - overgrown). My buddy and I cleaned it up about 2 or 3 years ago and led it up to the ledge about 30' from the top. The rock from there up is pretty rotten looking, so we rapped. Nov 23, 2010
