Description:

Start up Merci Me as if you were heading for the Grand. After the second belay lower off a cam to a 2-bolt station. Haul from flake ledge to here, then head up. The first pitch starts off as sport hooking with fatty bolts, goes thru a thin seam and up a few bolts. Follow corner systems and a few aid bolts up from here for a few pitches, then traverse left into Humpty Dumpty. Belay 7 or Green Acres are the best bivi options. Rap the Uncle Ben's rap route.

4 out of 5 stars 10 Years After Ascent

Climbed with yetanotherdave. Fun climb. More natural, but a little harder than Uncle Ben's.
