This is the hardest of the Little Five routes. You may have to pause at one point. It is a great introduction to easy slab climbing.


It starts on the right of the juniper tree.


Bolts to a 2-bolt anchor with chains on the right side of Sun Tan Ledge.

This is a good route for its length. I think the crux is near the top, and I think it is 5.4, not 5.5, but easy grades are not easy to determine.

Nice climb for the grade. The crux is a cool, balancy move up high.
