BETA PHOTO: Sodom and America & Cactus Crack, Turd World Count...


Start atop a small hill of loose sandy crap, possibly in a patch of poison ivy, at the left-facing flake. Move into a left-leaning undercling/roof and aim for a large dead pine tree. Continue past the pine tree to a smaller pine tree. Belay from it. There is bolt stud near the tree without a hanger.

All the rock seems pretty solid. There is lots of lichen on this one.

Belay from the bottom of the sandy hill. Watch out for cacti.


Find this at the far east (climber's right) end of TWC, just to the right of Sodom & America.

To walk off, go a bit right and then up to the top of the crag. Walk off east for loose footing and adventure, or for a safer but longer walk-off, to the west.


#2 Friend or #6 Metolius at the beginning. Mostly small gear and, according to B.G.'s guide book, a #4 Friend somewhere (maybe for the roof?).
