Fat Squirrel is the red line.


Start sitting underneath the roof on low holds and do a few cool but dabby moves to the jug at chest level and then climb into squirrel arete. Pretty fun. If you start at the jug it is about v5 and good.

A few pads or more, the landing is not perfect

Really fun route, super continuous with a lot of moves. Bring a few pads though, the top-out is a bit unnerving.

Good problem but more heady then hard? We all sent I one or two tries. Maybe 4-5

Where did you guys start? I thought maybe a low end 6 (hard to rate since it has one tricky move) from the jug, and thought the sit from the low holds added a grade or so. Wish I was out there, bet it was nice today.

We did start from the better bloc right hand. I think what would be the 6 version.

Nice work. Wish it was going to be colder for longer.
