The name comes from sounds made by a certain female on another route during the FA. Climb up a short groove to the first bolt. Clip the bolt, and make nice face move up a steep face to a steep section at the fifth bolt. Solve the crux and reach a two-bolt anchor. Good climbing!


Start about 150 feet right of Ben Dover.

Do NOT climb this route right now! She might be a moaner, but today I was a screamer at the third bolt. There's a large wasp/hornet/something nest under a rock directly to the left of the third bolt, and as I was taking my time and enjoying the climb there, I got swarmed! Horribly unpleasant at best, and dangerous if I hadn't already clipped. Watch out!

This is a good warm up to the more difficult Ben Dover. Some thoughtful moves above the bolts.

Loooong way to first bolt. Runout between bolts 4 and 5. Yes, it's easy terrain, but you never know when the lightly glued kitty litter is going to give way.

This route is killer! So many things to grab in many different ways. If you're feeling extreme, there's a few different areas to bust out some dynos to perfect jugs (was doing this on TR), and I just had a blast doing this route. Fun, fun, fun.
