“Tiny Dancer, It’s between Plug and Chug and Call of the Wild. It’s a modern mixed route that deserves to see a lot of traffic due to it’s accessibility, reliability and rock quality” -Josh Hurst
P1: M7 Climb 20′ of Plug and Chug than diagnal right on ice blobs to the center of the overhanging rock. Take the weakness up and right to more ice blobs on the mid-cliff ledge. Belay on left in the ice. It is possible to take ice blobs directly up to the rock in some years.
P2: M8 Start up the flake system to a small roof. Trend right, crux, to a shallow corner system. Once behind the icicles take the line of least resistance to the top.
Rack: 5-8 ice screws, standard rack to 2″, no pins needed, 12 quickdraws
