Glen nearing the crux of the climb


This route ascends the obvious dihedral right of Spanish Bayonet. Technical moves in a left facing book down low lead to an overhanging dihedral at the top with large holds on both sides.


An assortment of cams to 3.5" and stoppers are suitable for protection. Medium to large cams are required for the anchor. Rappel from fixed anchors with slings.

The crux demands good hand jamming technique. Pro is very good. 3-4 inch cams for building the anchor. Getting to and from this climb will have you ready for a soak at Desert Hot Springs.

This one deserves more than one star. I though there were three interesting sequences. Well-protected and worth doing.
