A route with texture.

Description 

Two pitches of very moderate bolted climbing ends on a ledge with very large views.

PITCH ONE 5.6: Climb up and right through very clean and featured rock to a two bolt anchor.

PITCH TWO 5.7: Climb up past many bolts up a clean face, through a band of healthy and robust Wasatch moss to a ledge with an anchor. The climbing is very well protected.

Location 

This route is two pitches of bolted climbing behind and to the left (south) of the small slab buttress that Hot Patootie and Los Pantalones De Alex are on. When looking directly at the slab, scramble up and left in the gulley to the south. About 60 feet up the gulley you will find an opening in the bushes and see the white painted bolts. To descent, rap with one 60 meter rope to the chain anchor on top of Hot Patootie. One more short rap will get you to the base of Hot Patootie. A second option for the second rap is to rap down the very bushy scrub oak, remove skin, and end up at the start of the route.

Protection 

Quickdraws and one 60 meter rope.

BEST ROUTE NAME OF THE WASATCH.
GIVE ME ALL YOUR CHOSS!

This route is really clean. Some of the cleanest rock we've first ascended. Even the moss is good climbing!

However, we shall deliver massive amounts of choss in another canyon. As soon as Pete can make an approach that is not hellish, it may be the longest choss in the Wasatch!!!!

It is the intent of the fa party that the moss on route remain unharmed. the texture adds to the experience . . . Like making love on a bearskin rug.

BAH! Excellent! So much more satisfying than climbing a freshly mowed moss freeway, as in this eyesore of a route...
