BETA PHOTO: Mike Z halloweening Midget Proof's crux.


The route is a left to right traverse across the right side wall of the cave. There's a crimpy big move crux between the 4th and 5th clip to a good rest at a huge undercling pod, than another big move over the bulge, followed by a few more moves on great holds to a mid anchor smack dab in the middle of the cave. This route is a great warm up pitch and will eventually serve as an easy start to routes continuing up and out of the cave.


The route starts on the right side of the cave and finishes right in the middle of the cave. This one is the longer traversing line as there is also a straight up version through the same cruxes at about the same grade.


Seven fixed chain draws to the anchor.
