Description

Scramble up some large blocks about 25 feet or so into an alcove below an overhang; there are thin parallel cracks in the alcove. Move up to the overhang and then past it (crux), go right a few feet and climb to a ledge with a decent tree.

Location

At the beginning of the Trapps, about 60 feet left of The Brat face, behind a small tree.

Protection

Standard 'Gunks rack

I remember doing this w/Dana. It is actually quite a nice little face climb and worth doing. Excellent moves. Very easy to TR from the usual ledge. A bit necky on lead. Sep 15, 2010

Hi Tim,

We didn't do this together; we did Little Rascals. That route is listed as a distinct route in the Swain guide and as a variation to The Brat in the Williams guide. But you are right, Little Rascals is worth doing. Mar 22, 2011

As a follower, I found this straight forward. My leader, however, bailed. He sailed it pretty easily on TR. May 9, 2014

I dropped my TR solo rope down this route thinking I was at the top of The Brat, and decided to do it thinking it looked reasonable. The route traverses right at below a small roof, but my TR solo rope did not, so I had to climb the roof. The roof sequence is harder but going straight up the crack on the left side of the roof instead of traversing right seems like a cool variation (maybe 5.10b?--too near my limit for me to accurately rate).
