Single-pitch routes typically don't really deserve their own route pages, but this route is not in area guidebooks or on other climbing sites, and so I am trying to put out some information on it.
It's only about 50' and is 5.2 at the very hardest (using the corner proper feels slightly harder than the face just to its right, the climbing route up which is called Nubbin, a 5.1), but it is decent for a few reasons:
Learning and practicing trad
If you toprope it, it should be no problem to climb Nubbin off the same anchor. You might also get away with Rubbin' (a stout 5.6) and Zig-Zag Edge, which are immediately left of the corner, though a fall on one of those two will likely cause a pendulum, whereas placing the anchor more strategically for those two will mean a pendulum if one falls off one of the first two. And because the corner is central to the grouping of the routes, a pendulum likely means crashing into a wall.
My main purpose in posting this, though, is to point out the trad potential since there is not a lot of it at Great Falls.
It's not a great trad route, or even a good one, mind you. I think I placed four pieces, some of them a bit sketchy, and I wouldn't have felt great about them on something harder with more fall potential.The start of the route is just a Class 3 scramble. Not until you enter the corner itself does it start to approach Class 5. Then there are some small cracks that can take gear (I climbed with stoppers and hexes) before a huge crack that I could only make an iffy placement of a #11 Hexentric with. This huge crack might be a good place to practice with Big Bros, but the sides aren't that parallel or smooth, and because I haven't yet used Big Bros, I can't really say if they would work well here.
