Description:

A one-and-a-quarter pitch climb up the slabbiest part of The Frog, which faces The Hand. Routefinding is tricky. Expect to pull down large chunks of rock, especially if you get off route. A helmet for both climber and belayer is absolutely required for an attempt on this scary climb. Bring narrow-nosed caribiners for the tiny holes in the homemade bolt hangers as well. Don't fall!

1 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

The route was very scary. I pulled rock down at least three times, and after I was unable to find the anchors, I had to rely on tied-off knobs and a body belay for my second. I wouldn't recommend this route to anyone.
