Description

I've had my eye on this little filly for a while.

Hooves! breaks out of the gate fast with a hard move establishing in the undercling. Move left along the undercling and make some fun moves around the flake. Some good gear and lieback moves lead to the mental crux where the feet get worse and you are forced to leave the crack for a single move. With the finish line in sight, head into the homestretch with a few more lieback moves and then escape left onto the slab. Traverse about 20 feet directly left until you reach a vegetated gully. There is an excellent, vertical crack to place a #1 and #2 Camalot.

Established ground up, onsite, this route was not scrubbed and may be a little dirty.

Location

This is right of Tater Tot. Look for the obvious flake. Walk off.

Protection

Gear up to a #2 Camalot. Save some yellow and blue TCUs for the top. From the belay station at the top, walk up the gully and then downclimb the easy ramp.
