Kemper at the undercling jug.


This was a toprope climb for 31 years but has since been bolted as a sport climb. It is located left of Makin' Muffins and Grab 'em in the Biscuits. Anchors are easily accessed by walking out the top of North Fin. Starts up slightly overhanging arete and out onto thin face. Gets shade most of the day.


Left of Grab 'em in the Biscuits. To get to anchors, walk out along the top of North Fin and across some boulders to the far end. You can see the anchors on Ego Donor across the gully. The chains are on the righthand ledge.

I bolted and led this yesterday with Jimbo. It is really good. Too short for 3 stars but great movement not necessarily bolt to bolt. Micro edges, a jug or two, side pulls, an undercling a pinch and a gaston. They don't get much more interesting.

Well worth the added bolts. Four of us got on this early afternoon today just after a group of three before us. It seems to be a well received addition to the area. The rock quality on the upper half of this climb is pretty amazing.
