Boulder up to a high first bolt and then make a tricky series of moves (crux) along the rounded arete to gain the 2nd bolt, after which it's mostly jugs to the top. Enjoyable climbing that ends all too quickly - the fun may last for more than eight seconds, but not much more.

This seldom done route rarely sees any traffic, but would be an ideal warm-up, or route to do while waiting for the more popular lines on Coyote Crag to free up.


Located on the far right side of Coyote Crag, about 50' right of Bye Crackie on the southeast arete of a small tower and just right of a small pine tree.


3 bolts, chain anchor

Might be worth doing if all the routes on coyote are tied up. Besides that it is not worth it.
