Description

This climb doesn't look like much but offers a nice fun moderate 5.8 climb. The holds up top are right where you need them and not where you want them same with the bolts. It is bolted very well you just have to keep an eye out for the holds. It does help to bring 3 long or alpine quickdraws the first 3 bolts zig zag and have a few flakes to go around. Once pass this part move up through a small bulge onto the face. Finish on perfectly spaced bolts on a fun face with good white crystals to pinch and grab. Crux to me was the upper section there is one more that you really have to trust your feet. Other than that enjoy a nice moderate. 60m can get you down just watch your ends as there isn't much "extra."

This climb is about 100 feet uphill (left) of "Pointy Little Devil" and about 20 feet left of "Little Gremlins" (see photo). It starts up an easy wide crack/groove for about 15 feet then angles off left and up on the face to the summit. Although the first bolt is about 15 feet off the ground, it is easy to get to going up the wide channel, then stepping left. The route is well protected with about 7 or 8 bolts and a 2-bolt chain anchor on the summit. A 60m rope is enough. Fun climb. Jul 8, 2012
