Description

This route starts on some darker rock at the leftmost end of the Pup Tent before turning the corner to the large cave with Cease and Desist. Head up relatively easy terrain clipping bolts to a roof (1st crux). Pull through, face another roof (2nd crux), and continue on to a ledge. Head up the crack. Place some fingers to off fingers gear and finally find the shared anchors with BBTB. We trundled a washing machine size block when cleaning this route. Scared the hell out of Susan Helms who lived at the ranch below; she said she almost called the sherriff after hearing the carnage. Glad she didn't.

Location

The second to last climb on the leftside of the Pup Tent; a shady route on dark rock. It is just right of BBTB and left of Ewok Stew.

Protection

Draws and some small cams (you can avoid using gear by traversing left at the ledge to clip the bolts on BBTB; expect rope drag).

I felt this climb was harder than BB&tB just to the left of it. I also figured it was going to continue to be a sport route like the first 60' that you can see from ground level, so I was in for a nasty surprise when I ran into the 30' runout at the top (thankfully it was about 5.7 grade by then). Lesson learned about having good beta before you assume anything. Oct 24, 2014
This route is a lot of fun. The bolts go all the way to the top now. Mar 25, 2017
