Description [Suggest Change]

This fun, short route climbs the clean-looking finger crack in the left-facing corner.

Start by climbing up the chossy choss band, which fortunately is well protected by bolts. Gain a stance below the crack, clip a bolt, and jam/stem/lieback your way through the bulge to a good stance above. A few more easy moves gains the anchors.

Location [Suggest Change]

This route is located on the left side of the huge buttress as you enter Main Elk from Pup Tent. It is the next route left of Velociraptor.

Protection [Suggest Change]

8 bolts; anchor with lowering biners.

The extension to this is really good. It seemed about 12a or 12b. Does anyone know what Jeff is calling it? Jan 18, 2014

I agree; the extension to the top of cliff is worth getting on. 5.12a, 8 more bolts to the anchors, a 60-meter rope will barely get you down. Jeff called it "Leapin' Lizards". Apr 22, 2014
