Short slab climb, with only one bolt. Probably doesn't get climbed as much as it should because it only having one bolt and being runout to the anchors, a groundfall is possible if falling while clipping the anchors.

With this said don't let that stop you from leading this climb. It is safe up to and clipping the first bolt. Then the crux comes while you are still below the bolt, so a fall at the crux is very safe. Some thin slabs moves get your feet just past the bolt. From there it is a jug haul to the anchors.

If you are able to do the crux clean the run to the anchors should be a walk in the park. Overall a good climb that should probably be climbed more.


50 feet right of Jelleyroll Arch Look for one bolt in the red face with some old open shuts at top for the anchor


one quick draw

If you can lead Shortcake, Creampuff and Bear=Claw...you can do this route; a little greasy, and a bit heady, but it's all there. Nov 5, 2012
Very cool, short route.

My girlfriend, who was belaying me, said "[I] would have decked if I botched the move before the jug."

I somehow did not notice this on my onsight..... Aug 23, 2016

This route is short but stout. The crux for me was stabilizing and moving above the bolt. I don't think you'd deck if you blew it before the thank God hold....unless your belayer is snoozing. :-) Aug 25, 2018
