Don't let the fun, juggy climbing down low lull you into complacency -- there's some tricky, hard-to-protect moves toward the top.
Starting just right of a prominent boulder, pull through an overhang onto nice conglomerated knobs. If the overhang seems too hard, you can bypass it by stemming between the boulder and the wall and then transition onto the face. Continue up the face right of the blunt arete and finesse your way through slopers to reach the anchors.
About the names: This is one of three undocumented climbs on the Burly Girls pinnacle that I found myself referring to as the Three Stooges. These have been climbed for many years, but I've not been able to find anyone who knows the real names for FAs. I don't like posting "unnamed" routes, so until I learn otherwise, they are Larry, Moe and Curly.
Starts just right of the corridor that leads to Pile Driver. Rap from the anchors.
Small to medium gear, with plentiful opportunities to sling horns. Bolted anchors.

I lead this over the MLK weekend and was surprised to find my hoodie covered in 10-15 ticks 5 minutes after setting it on the rock that is directly beside the start of the route where the shoes are located in the bottom right of the picture. Not sure if we picked them up on the way to this area or if this particular area had a higher than normal concentration of ticks since we didn't see them anywhere else that we went at Sandrock on Sunday. Just something to look out for.

Skip all of the retro bolts. The top takes a good blue tri-cam and a sideways #4 WC rock just two feet right of the anchor to protect the last tough moves to the top.
