It is of a sustained 5.9 nature of climbing. Pulling over the little ledge near the top is maybe the most physical move. Resisting stemming over to the left hand wall is the mental crux. The climbing is a bit harder if you don't stem over and keep both feet on the right wall. Nice finger locks in the crack section at 3/4 height below the little ledge with the angular shaped block sitting on it. The first 30 feet has some very mildy loose flakes and somewhat fragile rock but it is for the most part OK. This climb is "named" due to the similar nature of the rock and the rock climbing to another well know DL classic albiet quite a bit easier.


West Bluff... West Rampart... Big Toe to SOGC area. Situated between routes "Foie Gros" and "Homo Erectus". Get up to halfway ledge system in this area any which way you like....


Pretty good gear between small to mid sized stoppers and cams at about every body length. It gets better as you climb higher.
