Just left of Carolyn's Rump is a groove with vertical solution pockets leading up to a big nest next to a rap station on a slung horn.

Stem and pinch your way up this thing and try to console or shame yourself with the guidebook 5.6 rating as you sketch like mad on weird holds and sloping stances.


Just left of the distintive chimney of Carolyn's Rump on the North face of the cyclops.


Standard rack. And your mom!!! WOO HOOO!!!!

Lead the first 20 feet or so up to the ledge just below the thin left leaning crack. That it's as far as i got! It would be a lot more fun if the rock didn't feel like marbles under my feet and the dry lichen was cleared out by more traffic. After that first bit, I sat on that ledge for 15 minutes before deciding my confidence was shot. I lowered off a slung flake and my brother gave it a go,but we ended up traversing from the first ledge left to the chimney which leads to the rap nest. Rapped from there after cutting out old webbing mess. Presidents day 2015

If it hasn't cleaned up since 1966, I doubt it will ever be clean enough. Maybe in another 50 years things might be better.

Tried this for my third trad lead. Failed to get more than 10 feet off the ground.

I was looking for a quick roadside "pick-me-up" and this thing did NOT deliver. Bailed after clawing around for holds with my feet on grainy sloping shelves. Nope!
