This is a devious line that is spaciously bolted. The holds can be reachy for shorter folks, hence the name. The route works up from the shallow corner, then trends slightly right mid-way, over a small roof/overlap and continues on features up to a mossy open book and top anchors.


It is located left of the main ice of 7th Tentacle, and begins in a shallow, right-facing corner. Rap from top anchors.


8 bolts.

Awesome line. Well worth the effort! Feels more like the alpine than the standard Vail route. I kept saying to myself at the crux "A little higher, and higher, and higher, there we go!" Nice turf sticks too. The spacing between the 3rd and 4th bolt has some hurtful consequences if you blow it near the clip. Just about groundfall. That being said, it's not that hard between them. Besides that, the spacing is very manageable. This climb stretched my brain and arms out a little bit. I guess they call that Man Yoga?
