The one and only cricket. A fun climb that provides easy access to The Snake and The Shrew. It also provides access to top rope The Claw.

(Established as a free solo to access the harder upper pitches. Given the length and easier grade, others may simply "boulder" this entry pitch as well.)


In the Animal Kingdom on the far right side of Rattle Tale.


A few pieces of gear to 2"

Short little route that gets you up to a ledge that has some fun routes up from it. Really needs a good scrub for the 2017 season.
