Description [Suggest Change]

It’s mossy and has a lot of loose rock, but is well protected. Crux is towards the top where the lossest rock is. Be careful what you step on and grab.

Location [Suggest Change]

Downhill (approach side) of the crag. Should be the first climb you see.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Seven bolts. To avoid rope drag make sure to extend the first bolt. Two bolt anchor with chains on top.

Really surprised that anyone climbed this route so soon - ToDouble D must watch Mud n Crud! I would recommend extending the 3rd bolt over the first - although with the lousy rock quality you may not want to extend anything - the drag is not significant but there is a little since the available stances caused the route to wander a bit. I rope soloed the first 4 bolts and had a belayer for the last 3 - so the spacing really changes - but I think folks will find that each bolt protects a move. The rock is quite bad - I consider this my worst quality FA at Pinns to date - thus the name - enjoy! Jan 29, 2018

Might have been my belayer that was causing the drag, she was pretty new. I thought this was a cool little crag in an area I doubt many would think to look, hence my posting of it. And ya, It didn't seem like anyone had climbed it since your FA. Jan 30, 2018
Generous of you ToDouble. Two people I know of have led this (besides you and me). Good little adventure if you get to the east side late and there's no parking up top. Did you do the other routes? Jan 31, 2018
