START - Continue walking up and left 20-30 ft from the start of Forist Grump (40-50 ft up and left of Madigan). Above you and slightly right is a tree-and-bush/fern ledge. Happy Birthday and Stone Dust Torture start on this ledge.

P1 - Scramble up to the bush-ledge, the bolt(s) near the left end of the "ledge" mark "Stone Dust". Crux is in the first few feet, then easier climbing to the anchor shared with Happy Birthday.


draws and gear is desired for the easier climbing.

Thin friction moves passing the first two bolts (closely spaced, thank you). The rest of the climb has a lot of fun features. This climb has a harder crux than Whine and Lickher but it is rated the same?
