This has weaving but otherwise straightforward face climbing.


This is the next route right of Cheerleaders Gone Hippie.

We pulled quite a bit of loose rock off this route this weekend, including one softball-sized hold. It will probably get better after more ascents.

My partner and I, when we each led this route in March of 2010, found little to no loose rock and mostly enjoyable climbing; fun sidepulls and pinches all over the place. Lots of lichen, sometimes challenging route-finding, but not the choss-pile that's indicated in the new Poudre Canyon routes guidebook.
