Description

A short, steep face.

When it was first put up, Greg Childs reported it (along with a few other routes) as being shorter than its name, and 'by stacking the syllables on top of each other, the first ascentionists found they could bypass the crux entirely'. See excerpt at right.

Not much is known about it now, but the 'Brad Driscoll' rock marks the trail turnoff for Private Idaho. It will always be the leftmost route on the cliff.

Protection

Doesn't matter, nobody does the route anyway. But it can easily be toproped off a tree at the top.

There were four first ascentionists, though it is possible that it has been climbed less than four times.

I did this back in the early 90's and it was fine. Maybe it was the second ascent! I learned of it from the same magazine issued highlighted above.
I think we slung a tree near the start to protect crux moves onto the bulging face. I'm sure it needs a thorough scrub, but it's easy to access the top. Feb 10, 2017
