Starting about 20' right of "Effigy Too" 5.10a, stem and chimney up between the main wall and a large block. Clip the first bolt and cast off onto the steep face. A nice mix of black dikes, crimps, pinches, jugs and slopers take one past two more bolts and a short leftward traverse to the ledge/top. Gear belay.


About 20' right of the obvious crack line Effigy Too. Descend down a chimney on the backside of the wall, same as for the other routes.


3 bolts (3/8"), gear to 2" for anchor.

This climb is aka "Pinch a Smelly Ranger" and originally had a fixed pin down low to protect a more direct start (5.11+).

I did the route when it had that smelly ranger name, and I'm sorry to see that it was changed to something...well...more PC, I guess...Still an interesting climb.
