DescriptionThis is a line just to the right of The Delegate that starts out in a crack system and moves right into a chimney about halfway up. The upper chimney section may be a bunch of stacked rocks on its right side, so protecting that stretch may be challenging and climbing it gives you the sense you should tread lightly. There is an interesting bird or rodent nest at the top of the chimney. You can move a short way to the left to rappel off the anchors for The Delegate.
Don't climb this unless you have a sense of adventure and ability to embrace questionable rock quality.
This was named in honor of a family Robo Dwarf hamster who required that gentle sort of touch. If it is your route, accept our apologies and let me know, so that I can give credit to where it is due.
FWIW, there is no mention of this line in P. Hubbel's Front Range Crags, M. Rolofson's 1995 Boulder Sport Climber's Guide, or M. Rolofson's Golden Rock Climbs.
LocationThis starts with a crack system just to the right of The Delegate and angles right into a chimney at mid-height.
ProtectionA standard rack to a #4 Camalot and some big hexes with an emphasis on wider gear for the chimney.
You can TR it off The Delegate with a noticeable swing potential in the chimney (which actually could be better if you peel off).
