Once there was a little lowball roof hiding beneath leaves and dirt and now it's a worthy testpiece. This climb might have a Napoleon complex from being so small, but it's fierce, agonizing, and tons of fun! The beta is simple. Sit start and mantle. Use slopey fingertip seams and slopers and press your way onto the top of this thing. It's well worth every bit of skin you give it.


Maybe a minute from the main trail, this climb is just past Hairway to Steven and the dwarf roof is hard to miss. Once you've sent, just turn around and jump off.

low balls are fun because it takes some serious thought to figure out a route that is more than three moves, and can oftenbe real hard problems because of how balled up you have to be to do it...

This thing packs a punch for being super small&short. I ended up using a toe instead of a heel and was able to pull up and over easier. Such a good little route.
