Description

Climb slabby, fun moves to a prominent ledge with a tree/bush, which can also be accessed by scrambling from the left.  At this point you're facing the thin crux of the route, just above the ledge.  You do not want to fall here. After this, romp for a bit until you can engage the flake system that has a few suspect holds.  Move up and then hard right through the flakes until you find a path upward.  One more bulge with a single bolt takes you to the anchor, above and to the left.

Location

West Face of Big Rock, to the left of a chimney (the chimney is an alternate route called "Small But Fancy"). You'll climb to a ledge with a small tree/bush and then it's straight up!

Protection

All bolted.  Two alpine draws are essential (a couple more are better) to limit rope drag high on the pitch.

Note: This route is not well-suited for top roping due to rope drag.
