  • Description 

    This route climbs the southwest side of the formation via a continuous crack in the center of the face that leads directly to the summit anchors. You should be between CB and Sand Herse when you start.

    Begin with 5.11 fingers and continue up the widening crack finishing with a 5.10 offwidth near the top. This route is easily aided at 5.9, C1+.

    Descend with one two-rope rappel from solid pins on the summit to the base of the route.

    Location 

    As you're hiking in on the trail with the Marching Men on your left, Cuddlebunny is the third tower from the far end.

    Protection 

    Two sets of cams from yellow Alien to 3.5 Camalot. A few extra in the 1-3" range and an optional bigger cam for the top.

    ANOTHER Charlie Fowler route. I did this climb with Tony Sartin in Mar. of 1994;...we we unable to free climb this route;....too difficult and sandy for us;....but probably easy for todays gym fit climbers....(and monkeys will fly out of my....). The Klondike Bluffs area in a quiet, secluded , and very beautiful area to visit and experience.
