Description

This is a short climb dedicated to a friend lost in 2009, Mikey Brown - aka Binky of the Mountains.

It is short and sweet with several fun variations. The route is just past an easy 5.6 just to the right called CC (also with a plaque at base) that is a good introductory kid's/beginner's climb for the area.

Location

Once you top out on the trail under Osso Bocco, walk west until you see the route. You can't miss dead tree limbs hanging over the top left side of the route. The crux moves are after C4 - use your feet!

Protection

5 bolts to chain anchors.

Been up this route several times, our favorite at the Upper Tier. For a fun variation on top rope, stay farther right (too far to clip the first 3 bolts). Looks thin from below but has good holds. Aim towards the crack that is right of the 4th bolt, and finish on route. May 5, 2016

My favorite route so far at the upper tier. Had more trouble on this than Simpatico and more straightforward. Jun 14, 2015
