p1:Climb the obvious offwidth to the base of a right slanting overhanging crack.
p2: climb the crack to a tree
p3: do a single 5.9 offwidth move and exit right to a walk off
pitches are short but sweet and the route is never in the sun.
if you are looking at muttonhead from the bottom this route is on the right side. It is visible from the decent of sheepshead as a dark offwidth looking cavern
2#6,1#5,1#4,and doubles of 3 inch down to .5
all belays are natural

I'm now hearing this was done in the late 80's/early 90's (if at all)

Hey, I think I met you guys the night after you did this climb last winter. If I remember correctly you aided a bit of it. Has this gone free?

Steeper and slightly harder than the crux pitch of Pissgums, but thankfully a bit shorter. I'd recommend thin kneepads, thick pants, and long sleeves, plus a tape glove for the left hand. There is some pretty loose and questionable rock on the third pitch that the leader must gingerly tiptoe around, be careful. 2 #6's will indeed make you feel a whole lot better. Have...fun?

Andy's comment, "slightly harder" than Pissgums, given the entire number grade difference, is a testament to how burly Pissgums is.
