Tenuous-5.10. Short but sustained and challenging ...

Check NPS for Closures


This is a short but thought-provoking and very technical slab climb. A few easier moves to start and then a steady diet of 5.9 and 5.10 moves. Very thin hands on this one; good smearing and edging are essential to success. The route seemed to get a touch harder the higher one got, but there was no clear crux. Well-protected on lead. My two star rating is based on my appreciation for this type of climbing. If you aren't into sustained short but uber-techy slabs, your rating might mirror the no stars it gets in the new Busse and Burr guide.


On the NW side of Veiny. This route is near the top end of the little gully. The Beetle Kill/Dirty Little Secrets combo is to the immediate right with Babob one more route to the right going down the gully.
