BETA PHOTO: The bolts and anchor. Sorry for the crappy drawing...

In critical habitat area for the Desert Tortoise


This route starts to the left of Crime and Punishment, following a couple of bolts through the same initial slab.

The slab start is maybe around 5.9 and very sharp and precise. At the third bolt you'll be mostly standing up straight and by the 4th you'll be slightly hanging from your arms. Clip the 5th bolt and rest at the massive jugs between the 4th and 5th bolt. The crux is well protected by that 5th bolt and the 6th bolt has a great clipping hold. The climbing eases up to the anchor.


Starts on the same slab as and climbs to the left of Crime and Punishment.


6 bolts to hook anchors

If this is the one I did, I say its more like 11-. there is a line to the left of it that shares the start and is supposed 12a.

This is in the latest Goss guide at .11b (so I gave it the correct name and changed the entry's rating from 12-). I did it and .11b seems about right.

Also, the line to the left (House of Cards, .12a) doesn't share the start.
