Not even a one move wonder. . .kind of a half move. It's a nice little shortie climb, though.

First move is tricky, look for a small crimp chest high or just jump!

One move wonder... and very short. Don't hike in just to do this climb.

both anchors are spinnning, looks like some epoxy is coming out of the left one

Crux is at the beginning and then every move after that gets easier and easier. I agree with Cpt. Bad Beta, don't hike in just for this climb.

If you can hit this one, Dont Feed, Danger Mouse and Wonderful makes for a well rounded day! I think I had an easier time with the beginning because of my height. The crux for me was the move right after the ledge. Oh well! HAVE FUN!

You hit it on the head Captain...a long walk for a one move boulder problem.

ya, short, kinda fun, doesn't stand out. i couldn't help but laugh to myself to the "sport" climber's who decided pistol ridge would be a good destination... you do get a legit 10a move if you negate the cheater stones at the start. don't worry, they're in the woods now.... oh, first bolt clippable from cheater stones? really? i mean, really?
