Find this route on the right side of the mouth of Little Italy Canyon. This route goes quite smoothly until reaching a serious pinch out making it necessary to get your mindset out of jam, jam, jam to pass the constriction.

We found some knot-jammed webbing with a back-off biner attached just below the the crux section of this line. The crack above this pinched out region had not been cleaned of debris and there were no anchors at the next few obvious stopping points for rapping. As P Gallagher has suggested, to use words from the horses mouth, we have [ “Re-1st Ascended”] this line and more. We climbed through the pinched region and established a belay station leaving fixed rap anchors. Should this back-off attempt, just below the difficult but passable pinch-out, be counted as a FA for those that left the webbing?

Or do we just give it to Gallagher? He topped out and rather than walking 4 miles to get off this cliff he called Med-vac?

Nope, cellphones didn't exist yet.
