Deb starts the crack.

This is a natural line on the right side of Little Dude that has a spicy section in its middle. The route can probably be done in three different ways.

Start off a ledge system perhaps 20 feet off the ground. There is a scramble going up from the right or a climbing approach from the left.

Climb into a hands to fist crack that is somewhat reminiscent of Lumpy climbing. Where the crack peters out, you have some choices. The easiest is to move right, clipping the last bolt of Hummingbird Rodeo and its anchor and then continuing up and left to the anchors for Easy Dude. Alternatively, you can move slightly left into a delicate and balancy bit of climbing above a slab with pro below your feet. Keep moving up to eventually find good holds and finally a gear placement maybe 12-14 feet above the ledge (9 PG-13 to R). Finally, you can do a delicate traverse to the left on sloping holds until you get to a spot to move upwards. Once through the 12-14 feet above the ledge, the climbing difficulty eases dramatically.


This ascends an obvious crack system on the right side of the southwest face of this crag.


Camalots #0.75 to #4, 2 bolt anchor.
