Original route starts low, just below a 1.5 to 2" crack underneath a small roof. Put pro in here with a very short or no runner and move straight up to the fixed knifeblade. Stay low while clipping the knifeblade to help with groundfall potential. Move straight up into cruxy moves and then over left to the bolt. A few neat, juggy moves lead to a chain anchor from there. An easier variation follows the left arete.


In the middle of the face on the backside of Pinky Pillar


Trad gear, one fixed pin, one bolt and a bolted anchor with chains.

FA - Wade Parker and Brade Hoover. There are several variations to do the route so to avoid controversy we rated it 5.8 when we put it up. Aug 22, 2012

did it today for the first time, need to lead it. I thought it was a surprisingly good climb even though its short. Started middle part of the wall moved up and right then back left to fixed pin. Grab the jugs on the left arete. felt like 5.8
Good movement throughout. Aug 10, 2013
