Short, but punchy throughout without a generous rest, this route is an obscure gem in the little visited corridor bisecting the Hunks. The rock is pristine, except for a little grain towards the top.

With three good bolts and a "standard top out" you shouldn't miss out on the Archer-Friedgen. Just a few hundred yard from the well traveled Roofing Company, this one not only has good climbing, but sets you up to head up The Chair, that odd boulder you've been staring at from the North face of Snicker all these years.


Best approached from SW Face Right (Monkey Business Wall). Circle right around the end of the wall and head up, staying fairly tight to the wall. This route is located at the base of a struggling tree.


Three bolts, purple through yellow Camalots give a great choice for the anchor.

No fixed anchor, interesting top out and walk off probably suggest this isn't a sport rout.

Established ground-up and onsight, I remember hanging from big FISH hooks to drill the bolts. My notes describe the technical crux as the final moves.
