Critters 5.9+ (view)

This is a unique two-pitch climb. The most interesting moves are under the roof. They aren't "jams" per se; You can easily bury your forearms up to the elbows and use a sort of opposition between them and your feet. The first time I led this my arms got covered with silverfish. The little puppies were literally raining down out of the crack! That was mildly distracting... The crux is the move out from under the roof onto the belay stance on the upper wall. The stance at the end of the first pitch is reasonably comfortable, secure and spectacular: nothing but air below and sky and rock above. You have a nice view of the valley stretching out into the distance. The second pitch is a cruise, but quite fun at 5.5. A route well worth doing! According to the old handwritten guidebook "Indecent Exposure" this was first climbed by Steve Lynn and Greg Thoma in 1979.
