Sewing it up, like seven pieces in 40 feet.  Pretty hard climb for big fingers.   No anchors on top, but I wrapped the rope around the top block and then flipped it off after I cleaned it on rappel.

The lowest bolt shown in the white rock - lower left - is clipped while hanging onto some rat dropping holds.  Could use a cam to help not hit the ground.

The upper face goes on for a while to bolt anchors.  Lowers with a 70 meter rope.

Counting bolts. <br /> <br />Perfect little area for climbing and a picnic.  Shade, sand, grass, secluded.

Tried starting up the flared groove and quickly decided that, for me, 5.11 friction is easier than 5.8/5.9 groveling.  Seems more civilized to clip the first bolt of Spuds and head left.

You can climb Gargoyle Gardens (5.7 gear) and then continue up High Desert (5.10a gear and bolts) to the top.  Makes for a long fun pitch that still lowers with a 70 meter rope.

Fun climb, but don't blow the second clip.  Could be an ankle breaker. <br /> <br />But I'm an 'Old Man'

From the top (near the rap anchor) looking down on the last pitch.  This is, or can be, a difficult lead with little communication and a total rope stretcher.

'I can't believe it's raining'. <br /> <br />Flew from SLC to Seattle, rented a car and drove through Vancouver to Squamish, spent the night and woke up to a drizzle.
