Little Feat is located on the blunt arete directly facing you as you first arrive at the east-facing routes on Snowshed wall. There are five or six crux moves on the route punctuated by a couple of good rests.
6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor, there's a slight runout before the first bolt, but the 'R' Rating in Carville's book is pretty unneccessary.You could set up a toprope by hiking around to the left and ascending the third class gully.

The R rating on this climb is for the orginal route without bolts. I believe the rating was 10B. It was a very rewarding lead. Now it is just another quality sport climb

"You wouldn't have wanted to onsight it without preview like we did," according to Max Jones. Many of the "leads" at Donner (esp. Snowshed) by Max, Bullet and crew were "highly dialed" according to Max.

rating: 5.11a/b 6c 23 VIII- E3 5c
Pretty stout for .10d, I give it .11a/b which is consistent with what other folks at the crag were saying.
Crux for me was clipping the first bolt (kinda scary), tech crux was between the fifth bolt and sixth bolt (very sequencey) and physical crux between the sixth bolt and the chains (my arms were pretty shot at this point).
Definitely no "R" rating despite what Falcon book says. Guys at the crag were talking about the few brave souls that led this route on gear before it was bolted... impressive.

I thought that this route was quite difficult for the grade given here and in the new guide book. Better make sure you're a solid solid solid 10+ climber (or just a solid 5.11 climber) before you get on this.
