This is a fun route on great rock. If its length were reasonable, the route would be 4 stars. The hardest moves are stepping off the ledge at the base, so have a stick clip or a spotter. This route heads up and slightly right, on steadily improving holds. With no real rests until the anchor, this is a typical ET mad-dash for the chains.


This is the second route from the left on the 'super steep' section of the Frog Prince wall. Its also the 3rd route from the left of the overhanging dihedral.


Two bolts with hangers to start then three bolts with fixed chain draws to the anchor. Stick clip recommended.

It's hard for me to give three stars to a 29 foot route, but they are deserved in this case.

D. Jackson's Rock Climbing NM guide shows this route terminating at the anchors for Gollum, but I believe this is incorrect (certainly a possibility though). Instead, continue past three more fixed draws angling up and right.
