Puddy Girl is one of the hardest lines in the canyon, ascending a SW-facing buttress of bulges on high-quality granite. The route offers intruiging moves and a somewhat spicy final sequence. Unfortunately a no-hands rest at mid-height reduces the line to a series of two excellent boulder problems.

Begin easily with opposing sidepulls on light brown, relatively poor rock. At the third bolt the angle kicks back, but a weakness on the left provides good holds, leading to a big move to a great jug. Mantle onto the slab and rest as long as you like.

Traverse right onto the hanging prow. Sloping sidepulls and an excellent double-crimp work over the bulge. The crux comes trying to get the feet established on the headwall, and clipping the 7th bolt. A few more thin moves with difficult-to-see feet lead to the anchor.


Puddy Girl is the next route right (S) of Never Forget, or the next route left (N) of Dough Boy, beginning a few feet west of the creek, at creek level.


7 bolts, 2 BA, which currently has fixed biners.
