Description 

This warm place on a chilly afternoon provides delicate climbing up orange rock.

Althought the routes here are bolted they are not sport climbs and have a very runout feel to them. The climbing is characterised by steep smearing with the occasional small flakes. Composure is a requirement.

Descent: Facing the rock, walk down slabs to the left to a final steep 15 foot section which can either be down-climbed or, if composed, walked off.

Getting There 

Park at Echo Rock Parking Lot and walk under the EBGBs Boulder and around the right-hand side of Echo Rock past TS Special. Follow the trail across open desert heading towards the SW Face of Little Hunk, just before reaching this face cut to the right and scramble through bushes and over boulders to rach the base of the wall (faint trail).

Begin from boulders on the far right side of the great southwest face slab, up and left from the start of Perverts in Power. Climb 4th class up and right on a low-angle slab that steepens, with a few harder (5.8 R) friction moves leading up to the first bolt. (This is the original line; to lesson the seriousness of this section, you can now belay at the Sky's the Limit anchor, or clip it for pro).
