Little V notch directly across from a tree up the hill a little from Head Like a Hole (climber's left). Basically a V1 start you can protect by swinging a large nut/hex/tricam into the slot above to set up a mini-top rope. Once above, meander your way up the face through easy 5.6ish climbing looking for gear. Not quite as many "on demand" placements but plenty if you remember to sling some chickenheads. Choose your own adventure. Kelly calls it a 10, I'd call it a sort of reachy V1+5.6 = 5.9.

Descent Options:

Hike off climber's left, same as other Meat Puppet routes.

2 out of 5 stars cragulous

Another nice line up the Meat Puppet crag face, tackling a different section of the wall than the rest. A little different rock in this section so it makes for another worthwhile lap up the wall. Several spots up top to build a gear anchor depending on how far you want to traverse at the end. Lackluster selection of trees (most are smallish or dead) though.
