This is a line on the right side of The Annex that a natural weakness with nice jugs. Its relative lack of loose debris made us question if it had been done. If so, let me know and I'll adjust this.

P1. Start to the right of a medium-sized evergreen in a right-facing dihedral of sorts. Move up to a bulge with a crack (crux) where the jugs peter out a bit. Continue up chasing jugs. A slightly reachy bit ~2/3rds the way up precedes easier terrain an the belay ledge with a good-sized tree.

P2. Move up and then left to the top.

Walk off over the top and down to the right (3rd Class).

FWIW, the above name was inspired by hearing voices clearly from climbers on Bitty Buttress. The song "Voices Carry" was recorded by 'Til Tuesday in 1985 and had a top ten .


This is on the right side of The Annex.


We used a rack including a few wires and cams to a #4 Camalot. A few longs slings or 48" sling(s) that you can tie are nice for the P1 belay.
Climbs lacking loose debris, whether rock or lichen, haven't necessarily been climbed previously. Those may be composed of a more resistant rock and/or lie in areas more exposed to wind and sun.

Conversely, lichen-infested climbs that have lots of loose rock might have been climbed previously. I have left most of my many shaggy passages in original condition because I chose not to chalk, clean, brush, or trundle, although I have moved or tossed rocks that threatened my companions. A subsequent visitor may assume that s/he is doing a first ascent. Nov 25, 2015
