Description 

A somewhat nondescript route starting just left of Slim Pickins. This is usually the escape route for those unable to climb Slim Pickins or Pet Semetary. It is a pair of hand/fist cracks that provide decent but dull climbing to the canyon rim.

Location 

In alcove shared with Slim Pickins. Rap from second stunted tree using a 60 meter rope for a single rope rappel.

Protection 

Standard rack up to 2" cams.

My personal comment is that there are many nicer routes in Fremont Canyon than this one. I didn't give it a "bomb," but it came close.

This is actually a good starter lead with good gear and one of the few easy moderates in Fremont.

Not a terrible route by any means. Good gear, plenty of face holds and restful ledges for the budding trad leader.

Rapping down from the tree at the top led to a stuck rope, consider rapping from pet cemetery and scramble over if you want to lead Mary Ann, or have really long slings

Although not a classic Mary Anne is a worthy line, with good jams and movement. I was confused by the inconsistency in moderate grades at the bridge area, but feel this is graded appropriately at 5.7 Rap from adjacent line.

If you read my comment about Carpenter's Corner more carefully, it says "great rock," not particularly the climbing. It simply is better than many in the area, as is Mary Anne. The grades I've applied here were the "consensus" given BITD, and correspond well to the older Steve Petro guidebook.
