Description

Rap 80' down to small belay ledge. From ledge go up and right to excellent mostly hand sized crack, arriving at a spacious ledge after 30'. From the ledge go up and left into thin crack in a shallow dihedral, stemming and using face holds.
Short people like me might opt for a super fun all out dyno off the ledge to a big jug to get established in the corner.

Location

Walk along the north side until you see an oddly shaped medium sized ponderosa (to me it was reminiscent of a truffula tree) about 30-40' feet back from the rim. The route is generally below this spot. The small belay ledge is 15' right and 15' below the ledge marking the start of the Caul of the Child fingercrack/stembox.

Protection

Small nuts and doubles from 00 C3 to .5 C4. Singles from C4 .75 - #2

Large stoppers and a micro cam for the belay.

Potential to be rather amazing with clever sequences at a manageable grade especially compared to the other Cwm-Corners. The step off the belay over space is pretty exciting as well as the bomber hand crack and exposed thin crack with JUGS! Volunteer's scruffy version of Loose Lips. Oct 13, 2014
