Description

Great climbing with a bit of a bold edge... If you like low angle face and crack climbing with a dash of spice this one is for you... The crack was really dirty for a while but it looks like its seen a good cleaning...

Pitch one: 5.7 Just left of Short Order's start climb a crack to the same ledge as Short Order... Or just walk around to the left and up to the same ledge if you just came for the business...

Pitch 2: 5.9R Climb up the slightly featured face above the ledge past a pocket, then a pin, and finally a bolt... Clip the bolt and follow a faint dike up and to the left before making a hair raising move in to the sweet "thank god" crack... Climb the crack which is nice and more relaxed up to the same tree anchor as Short Order...

Location

Right Between Short Order and Sleeping Beauty...

Protection

Normal rack plus some tri-cams...

I did the first pitch of this en route to Short Order thinking it might reduce the rope drag since it was a little more direct. After doing this I'd have to recommend an intermediate belay. There was enough rope to reach the top tree with this link-up, but it still felt quite heavy at the top even with most pieces extended.

The first pitch was kind of wet and pretty dirty when I did it, but I'd still recommend it. The moves were really fun. With the fiddly gear on this pitch, it doesn't feel very much like the guide book rating of 5.7 but it's totally G to the pin at the top of the crack before it turns slabby. Jun 16, 2014

This is really something of a hidden gem. The moves are just plain awesome---and on the lead it will definitely take your full attention (bring Tricams). And once your right hand curls into that crack, it's totally over (a triumphant moment to look down at your sparse gear and chalk marks). May 14, 2014

Really tricky but fun first Pitch. Gear is finicky at best...particularly at the top before the pin. Great little route. Wish it saw more travel! May 14, 2013

Direct start- 5.10 RRR . Protected by a big skyhook in a pocket. Up the scoop. Nice moves and you might not die. Nov 21, 2009
