I like tight spaces!


Just stuff your whole body into the cute and stem your way up the chimney to freedom. The trickiest part is negotiating the chimney at the start. After that there is a mix of crimps, slopers, and slab to get your way to the top.


The route is located on the smaller, gum drop shaped feature to the right and in front of the South Horror Rock section of Hall of Horrors. To reach the TR anchor spot, proceed towards the base of My Senior Project, continue up the ramp and scramble to the top of the feature depicted in the route map.


Must build your own TR anchor using webbing and locking carabiners. Recommend using an additional sling/runner to extend the anchor off the master anchor point.

To anyone who may come across this post, please advise if you have seen this route in another guide book, forum, etc. While I took artistic liberty in naming this route myself, having climbed it on 11 January 2016, I have not seen it listed in any guide books at all. Thus, while I believe it to be a new route I named, I am also fully aware it could be an existing route from years before. Thanks!
