Walk Right from Star-Bellied Sneeches and you will see a small break in the trees on the left. Walk up a short hill to this obvious dirty offwidth/chimney with large holds at the beginning. Pull over a sandy bulge making use of friable but large jugs to a small ledge. Climb the chimney until it narrows to a right leaning offwidth. Continue up the offwidth and traverse left to small ledge with a tree. Rappel from here or continue 10 more feet to the top and rappel from a tree to descend.

With a description including "dirty offwidth," "sandy," "friable" and other pleasing adjectives, how can this be two stars?

it is a 5 star system now, so are you saying it should have more or less stars? I guess it depends if you like mank and are old school trad...

Because that's what was pre-populated in the field when I entered it in.

I did this climb with my brother in the summer of 2005. Chances are it has seen a lot of ascents. We thought it was god save the queen as we were hiking the wall, then later found that climb.

"dirty offwidth", "sandy", "friable" and other pleasing adjectives, how can this be two stars? I know, right!? This should be at least 3...especially for piggie - Haas

I lead this climb with friends a couple of years ago and again several weeks ago. We left webbing and a rap ring at the top tree both times. It is not a 5.8. Probably a 5.6-esp in comparison to other climbs at Dip Wall
