This is a short granitic crag that faces Dude's Fishing Hole in Golden Gate Canyon SP. It has at least 9 routes on its southwest face. The route developers are Mark Rolofson, Kirk Miller, Ken Trout, Vaino Kodas, Ernie Moschovitz, and others. Some of the routes are a bit challenging, some are moderates.
Finding this crag can be a bit challenging unless you see if from below or wander back to it after getting to Dude's Throne, approximately 120 yards away.
Eds. Please note that after discussion with GGCSP, Little Dude is within Golden Gate Canyon State Park and thus is subject to its regulations. Hence, any new fixed hardware requires Park approval. Thank you.

This is a short but good quality route that lies just to the right of an obvious chimney and the route Moonshine.The start had good hand holds but slippery feet. The crux seemed to be getting your feet high and lockoff for the 2nd hold. Mark Rolofson feels the crux is at the 3rd bolt. Move upward on some good jugs. You can stay slightly left of the bolts and find small but good edges...or...you can traverse right at the 3rd bolt and go for a slap for a sloper (harder, pr...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
