Meredith Knauf on her first trad lead.


Nice and very short thin hands crack. Good intro to thin hands jamming. Would make a great warm up route.

The easiest way to climb this seems to be to jam your left foot while using your right foot to smear.

A short but very enjoyable route and, as mentioned, a decent warmup for the desert...which can be difficult to find. A nice gentle intro to the bad it does not go on for another 100 feet.

Aptly named. Nearly impossible to grade due to its length. Takes 2 #1 camalots and 1 #2 camalots, or 1 #1 camalot and 2 #2 camalots. Certainly no harder than 5.9
