BETA PHOTO: The start of "Crimps and Cramps".

Description 

The full name is "Crimps and Cramps, and Farts from Gramps" in reference to Biddick as he was hammering on the drill.
The route starts in a steep water streak to gain the upper rounded arete. To reach the upper section of the route, you can slide a little right in a trough or make it a little harder and go straight up the bolt line.

Location 

On the west side of the formation. It is the left of the current two routes in the area. The start is about 25 feet left of Up the Buttress.

Protection 

About 12 bolts to chains. Well bolted by Needle standards.

Fun route. Protected well. A nice route to improve sport lead skills because of the great bolt placement.
