Carla The Stripper 

P1 - 5.8 - Starts atop a block, after an akward move to get atop the block, step right and cruise the bolt line to anchors.

P2 - 5.4 - follow the bolt line straight up.
Alternate finish via Lusty Lady - Step left from the belay and cruise a beautiful slab to the summit.

Do a double rope rappel off glue-in anchors. You could probably combine the 1st pitch and the 5.4 pitch for one long pitch to the summit. For sure with a 70m. Trying to combine the 5.8 and 5.7 would result in bad rope drag.


On the middle of the west face of the Mud Pile. Starts on blocks right before ground steepens and drops to the hard cave.


draws 10-12

First couple of bolts feel a bit stiffer than 5.8...Fun beginning to the Traverse.

One 60m rope will get you down after two easy rappels. No need to carry two ropes all the way to The Mudpile.

At the first belay, Carla the Stripper goes almost straight up and is 5.5.
Lusty Lady veers left, then up, and is 5.8. A full length rap will result is high pull force as the anchors are set way back. Perhaps better to do two raps.

60m will reach the top in 1 pitch. If rapping from the top of the route (instead of hiking over to the rap station atop Tuff Shit), I would suggest to use the 2 glue-ins just downhill of this route's anchor, which I believe is the anchor for Blacklisted. The hangers for Carla are regular hangers without rap rings. The above ones for Lusty Lady are glue-ins, but as Idaho Bob says, they will make for a difficult rope pull--the lower ones are slightly better in this regard.
