4 out of 5 stars back again

This time did the lead and found it even more enjoyable. Work up the easy ramp, and go straight up the arete for the best experience. Tons of gear, and grippy decent rock once you hit the arete - the ramp had some loose stuff. Also be careful to put pro a little earlier than you might guess on the arete to avoid potentially getting skewered by the death tree below if you were to somehow fall. Slightly overhanging up the arete but juggy. Top out and build a gear anchor at the base of the large boulder feature.

Walk off climbers left - either scramble the messy gully or climb over the 5' tall rock and get on an easy but vague trail that loops around in a couple minutes.

Best views at Moore's IMHO. Easiest to get to this area by climbing "my wife's pajamas" and hiking a short distance up and left. Look for the mysterious lumber pile and you'll know you are on the right path. Alternately, seek out the gully and bushwhack trail a little ways down, although it's easy to confuse with all the others.

5 out of 5 stars Definitely worth the hike

This would get a lot more traffic if were easy to get to. Meat Puppet is swarming with earwigs and no-see-ums in mid June.

4 out of 5 stars Decent climb

First visit to the meat puppet crag. Looks like there are a number of routes possible to get to the top, sort of a "choose your own adventure" type area. You can start with a wicked overhang (but maybe that is one of the adjacent routes) or the casual slope we took up. Our version (I seconded) took us up about 20 feet, traversed a similar distance and then more or less straight up to the top. The top section was the best part of the climb, with sudden exposure and great views. The top out was very nice - you are very far above and west(?) of the top of many of amphitheater area climbs. I could see the top of Wailing Wall and it looked a million miles away - we were way up over it, at least 300 feet, if I were to guess. A very nice thing about this is that there was a nice safe scramble down.
