BETA PHOTO: Getting ready for the Pump.


A short but fun and pumpy sport climb. Follow the steep fin/arete up and left to anchors at the top.


Starts next to a campsite on the side facing away from the valley, at a prominent fin/arete. Lower from the anchors.


Four bolts, anchors (shuts).

Really fun pumpy route.

Word of advice, skip the last clip and go straight for the anchors

Trying to remember....pretty sure it was fine. Either way, the third is so damn close to it you're well protected.

Hello friends .. My buddy and I were walking around and ran into good ole Johnny Arms and apparently my friend and him are ... buds. We ended up climbing with him for the day and got the full tour. When we came across this route he gave us a bit of history on it. When it was first put up the idea was to follow the crack/flake system to the left of the anchors under the roof, hang the rope in the hangers, and then down climb the arete/flake system. Hence the name "Too" Pumped Chump.

The arete is far from a 5.10, do it this way and maybe the crack will give you a little more of what you're looking for. Also a bit of beta, study the crack/flake to find hidden gem hand holds, chalk may be misleading.

This feels like a 5.8+ unless you follow the bolts across the top traverse. Lots of heel hooking. If you're looking for a fun first overhang lead, this is it!

Super fun at night with a fire lighting this short, pumpy route!
