BETA PHOTO: Approaching crux (circa 2003).


A fun route. However, be ready. Moderately overhung with generous holds, it lulls many into thinking its a typical RRG jughaul...only to be spanked near the top.


Located almost at the extreme east end of Lady Slipper-Global Village. Follow trail along crag past several bolted sport routes to a corner. Loosen Up ascends the steep face JUST LEFT of this corner (see photo).


6 bolts.
