Description

This climb flies a bit under the radar because it's not in the guidebook, but it's deserving of more attention.

Start sitting with two obvious low edges and small feet. Make a hard move to gain a good edge and then continue upward via incuts and sidepulls to a delicate top out. Though the rock is somewhat fragile/hollow feeling, this is a really good climb with great flow to the moves.

The landing is a little spooky due to the possibility that you might fall down into a gap between the boulders and end up at the bottom of the start of 'Hobbit Hole'. Given that, it's a good idea to be fairly solid at the grade before climbing this or to have a few pads and spotters.

Location

This climb can be found on top of the boulder that 'Jaws' is on. It climbs an obvious face that is on the same boulder as 'Hobbit Hole'.

Protection

A couple of pads and perhaps a spotter as the possibility of falling into the hole is kind of spooky.
