Description

A short but fun route. Starts on two sharp but positive crimps at eye level. Move right to a triangular looking crimper and do some fancy footwork to gain a sidepull crimp on which you can match. Then its up to a jug rail and over the top.

Although there wasn't any chalk on this before I got on it, I imagine someone has probably seen it and climbed it before?

Location

It's on the northwest side of the Bottleneck Pass. If you're facing Tilt-a-whirl, go left and skirt around the base of the large formation. This ~10 foot crimp face is on the right, pretty easy to find.

Protection

Crimping strength.

As far as I think, this was 1st done by the Hausmann brothers and some friends around 1999 or so. Fun. May 9, 2010
