AKA Prairie Dog on a Mound. When Frosty and I climbed this thing in the late 80s, we were the first to sign in the register since George and Dave's first ascent. The register was in an old pill bottle that was for George's wife's birth control prescription. Classic! I know Todd Gordon had climbed it in between the FA and our ascent from Todd's Loose Rock article. They must have missed the small register though.

I never made the summit.....I was with my non-climbing friend, and he was unable to climb or jumar to follow, so I made it almost to the top...but not enough rope to summit from his belay on the ground........
