Mountain Project continues to expand with Hiking Project, and we're giving away loads of gear from Arc'Teryx, Superfeet, & Zeal. Check it out!

Description 

The red-headed midget stepchild of the Big Water Bluffs (see Toula's Rock'n'Road). First summitted in '97, though not affiliated with MTV Spring Break '97. A sandy slab to a sandy fist crack to a sandy offwidth to an expanding sand bulb to a sandy summit.

Location 

Just across 89 from the thriving metropolis of Big Water. This little knob is dwarfed by and immediately to the west of the Big Water Bluffs. Probably just outside of the Nat. Recreation Area, so unsure on access issues.

Protection 

Big cams are good. I drilled some sloppy pins at the top so you might bring a bolt kit or consider simul-rapping if yer rope's hella long.
