Description:

A little hard for a 5.6. The beginning is real easy but it gets kind of awkward near the end.

Descent Options:

When I climbed it there was a hex left behind that somebody rapelled off of. I think the best way to get off it to walk across to the right and rapell of the anchor at the top of Mickey Mouse. You can remain on belay for this but it's not really necessa

1 out of 5 stars ugly

ugly climb w/ no anchors, unless you want to count the slings around a shady tree-not worth the time

4 out of 5 stars Fun but ugly

Ugly climb, but worth a go at least once.

4 out of 5 stars Fun climb, beware of snake

I enjoyed this climb. Dirty start, its great once you get into the crack. I encountered a snake in the crack about half way up. Was able to use flakes/crimps on the face to climb around him w/o disturbing. I believe it was a rat snake (non-venomous), but not for sure. It was a little awkward toward the top where it gets wide. At the top, I placed a directional then traversed right past a small tree to a slightly larger tree where there were slings and rap rings. I belayed and rapped from here. Recommend larger and mid sized cams.

Pretty cool route. Make sure you have enough large hexes and/or cams.
