Description:

Climb up the right side of the face, left of the crack/gully, and 30 feet left of "Welcome to Echo." Begin climbing below an arching, left facing, crescent shaped flake where the rock changes from tan to black. Climb up the flake on side-pulls, edges, and small pockets on wonderful black rock. From the top of the flake move up and right on horizontals and pockets. Higher pull through a bulge and continue to the top, and the anchor, on positive edges and pockets.

4 out of 5 stars Little Chossy

Still some loose stuff....careful about tossing rocks as people may be below you in the Grotto.

4 out of 5 stars Hot Dog!

Wow! Great climbing on small positive edges and pockets on beautiful tan & black rhyolite. A thoughtful move over a bulge is the crux. Well protected and clean.
