A short, fun climb on Mineral Fork Tillite that uses pockets and positive edges to reach and then surmount the large, obvious, rounded cobble two-thirds of the way up. The rock is sharp and gets better the higher you go.

After getting past the cobble trend left on small edges to the anchor.


The left-most climb in the dark brownish-green tillite on the lower, southeast-facing part of The Wasp.


3 bolts, hangers-and-rings anchor.

Nice route. The huge jug between the first and second bolts is bomber. I thought the 2nd bolt placement was a bit awkward, but overall felt good.

Great Route made a little more difficult by my buddy breaking a major hold off to the left of the first bolt. Does not add any real difficulty to the route however.

This was a fun one but not to do just by itself. It is pretty short being only 25 ft. Some of the edges are pretty sharp so think about bringing some tape along just in case.

Short route with a few fun moves. Definitely very sharp, my foot slipped off a hold and I cut my knee on a little fin requiring 11 stitches.
