There is a bit of loose/flaky rock. Bring a #4 Camalot for the upper easy part.

Nice obscure route, clean finger-to-hand jams in a shallow RF corner. IMO one of the best of the Stirrup Tank area. Good patina rock on the steep lower half - polished and slick. The difficulties and the rock quality decrease a bit up higher. Shares a bolted rap anchor for another route up top. Single rope rappel to climber's right.
