Description:

This is a very short crack climb but has a fun move or two. It would certainly be better if longer but it is worth doing if you have climbed all the routes in the near vicinity and want to place some gear. The crux comes about halfway up as you commit to the crack. Location This is the flip flop dihedral with a short crack immediately left of the climb Mini Me. The bolts on Mini Me are about a foot to your right as you start the crack.

Descent Options:

Descend from a two bolt anchor at the top.

3 out of 5 stars Getting into the crack

The crux for me was getting established into the crack about 10 feet from the deck. It just took a little delicate climbing to make it go smoothly. A fun, short route.
