This is better than it looks from the ground and quite fun actually. It lacks adequate protection for a safe lead but makes for a convenient and worthwhile toprope lap after climbing any of the half dozen routes that share the same anchor.

Start out on easy 5.10 slab beneath the emerging tiny crack. High on the slab, tiptoe through a delicate 5.11a crux and then continue up the small crack as the difficulty eases. The top of the climb consists of 30 feet of easy 5.6 cracks. Stewart Green's Rock Climbing Colorado says this is an 11b, but it felt a little easier than Slip Slidin' Away.


This ascends a discontinuous, small crack between Slip Slidin' Away and The Caped One.


This is best done as a top rope but could be done as a scary lead on finger-sized and smaller pro. There is a 2 bolt anchor at the top that is shared with a host of other nearby climbs such as The Caped One, Slip Slidin' Away, and The Grunt.

This seemed easier to me than Slip Sliding Away.
