History- The FA of this climb has long been credited to "Jim Shimberg and Bradley White Oct. 18, 1987". However, NEITHER of the two "Brad" Whites nor Jim Shimberg has any recollection of doing the climb!

Given its name, you don't need too much imagination to "see" where this climb goes!

P1 - Get to the "Launch Ledge" by your choice of routes.

P2 - (Var) From the "Launch Ledge", climb directly up the "moon scooped" rhino skin between "Dead Easy" and the slab climbs to the left. The usual line is a few feet left of the clean rock on the right. 125 +/- 5.5 to 5.6 R/X. Belay at the double bolt anchor of Dead Easy.

Variation: Climb the clean rock a few feet right of the "rhino skin" 5.7 R/X or TR

NOTE: For many years, if not decades, a 12" diameter tree acted as the rap anchor for this, and a few other of the climbs in the area. It fell over in 2012 and departed the mountain in the winter of 2013-14, and now resides a few feet below the "toe" of the slab, although already the 'local' vegetation has made it difficult to find in the summer.

None, zero "Nada",... which is somewhat of a shame since just one or two bolts would make this climb a nice beginner/intermediate lead. With two ropes it can be top-roped from the Dead Easy anchors.
