C. Reynolds on Little Boy.


Dihedral on arete. Shorter and easier than the other G.O.T. routes. If this one was 30 feet longer, It would be a 4 star route. Beautiful chocolate brown dihedral up to a block. Traverse right into a second dihedral, take this up to a roof, that is avoided by climbing on the right hand wall. Super fun!


Follow trail to G.O.T. proper. Scoot around to the right for Balls deep thru "Little Boy". This is the farthest route on G.O.T front face. This route actually faces North and shares the same arete as Enola gay.


6 bolts. Single rack to 3".

Nice rock, but minus one star for bolting the cracks.

Definitely cross to the right underneath that giant detached block about half way up and don't place any cams behind it. Don't even think about liebacking straight up the left side of it. A whipper onto a #3 Camalot in the crack behind that block would almost certainly dislodge it. That thing is not held on by much, belayer beware!
