Description [Suggest Change]

Start from the trail and begin just to the right of Happy Puppy. Fun 5.6 Jug Jumping, 5.8 face and crack (use the tree to chimney if you want) into a corner followed by a 5.8 finger crack through a roof and short crux. Then scramble to the anchor shared with Happy Puppy.

Location [Suggest Change]

Missing Bottle Buttress (Trap Balls Buttress).

Trad pro to 3". Have a couple small pieces for the crux.

Nice one Doug. And also great to have Mr. Lincoln get his revenge. Nov 8, 2017
Fun little climb. The crux felt a bit stiff at 5.8 but I probably botched the sequence since there are a lot of options. Mar 11, 2018

Great route, found the crux to be down low getting established into the finger crack. Another great additional to the MBB! Thanks Doug! May 23, 2018
