This obscure line escaped publication in the Older Vogel books and we found details in the rockshop in the notebook. The rock is generally imperfect as it has not had much traffic, but is only a little scaley until you get up top to a few crumbles. No big looseys.


Just left of Bambi... you will see a long crack system just left of the blunt arete. Climb up this with a corner on your left until you slope up and right out to top out up on the ledge above Bambi.


A moderate rack with pro to 4"

Did this route while waiting on a party on Bambi Meets...I thought it was as enjoyable as Bambi Meets. Same descent.

fun long crack, with steep finish like adjacent Bambi Meets Godzilla but less sustained. felt like a hard 5.7, easier than Bambi Meets Godzilla which felt like a hard 5.8

Fun. The route in general is a bit crumbly/planty. Initially I tried an alternate start of this out to the left, avoiding the cave start. The alternate was extremely crumbly and we backed off and got back on the normal start.

There is an alternate finish to get up on the Bambi belay ledge. Look right and follow a solid hand crack up to the ledge. Nice anchor/belay directly above this crack.
