A sea of white granite and Fall colors in full effect. Nearing the top of the 3rd pitch.
Topo showing A Little Nukey (5.9PG13). I would give this route 5 (out of 5) stars. There are a total of 6 pitches. I would recommend this route for a competent 5.9 leader. A few spots seem just a bit runout but nothing too severe. Note - the Moser topo in the Sequoia Kings Canyon Guide shows pitch 2 going right of the roof. Some creative trickster has now moved the bolts so it goes straight over the roof (5.9). Actually an improvement in the quality of the climb. Be sure to bring lots of long slings (and biners) for the upper pitches. You'll want Tri-cams for the "holes pitch". Plan on about 5 to 6 hours from car to car. I would say the climb is definitely 5.9, not 5.9-.

Photo showing the "cat walk" prior to the rap. It's short, easy walk to get to the rap station. First rap is 100'. Second rap is about 200'. I suspect you could do the 2nd rap at 100' and downclimb the rest on ledges to the right of the rap line. Careful not to rap off the end of your rope!
