Very thin face climbing for 4 bolts, with a groundfall potential getting to the 2nd bolt. Pull a bulge about halfway up on good holds (some are fragile), to another thin section. The top section takes small gear but the climbing isn't as hard as the bottom.


Just right of Skinny Mini, shares anchors. A 70m rope barely reaches up and down with stretch.


Mostly bolted (careful getting to the 2nd bolt), the last 20 feet take small TCU's or C3s.

Hangers seem to have been replaced at one point. Too cold to get on this one, but looks like R or better from the ground, failing to clip 2nd bolt probably means a chopper ride...

Failing to clip the first 3 bolts I would say is also pretty dangerous. Had an old-school exciting feel to it. I wish the upper section wasn't neutered with it's retro. There are a lot more bolts on this than the guide suggests. If you clip all of the bolts, you only need a few finger sized pieces with some nuts.
