Unusual climbing for the Little Stone. This route follows the short left arching corner on the extreme right side of the face.

Pitch 1: A sequence of difficult (11b) stemming moves passes two fixed pins in the arch as it curves left. From the end of the arch wander up the face past a bolt (10a) to the shared gear belay of Montezuma's just under the upper roof.

Pitch 2: Get psyched, suck it up, and launch into Montezuma's 10a mantle. Not much more to say.


Starts jusr right of Montezuma's.


A couple of fixed pins, a bolt, and thin gear.

I pounded in the two fixed pins to the eyes. Should be good for awhile.

Looks like there may have been a 3rd pin to protect the start, none currently. Pretty nasty fall if you pop out before clipping the high pins. I opted not to get fucked up and climbed something else.
