Take a Hike 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E6 6c  ID : City of Rocks : Checkered Demon
A great route with amazing position, the Twin Sisters and a beautiful open plain sitting behind you! The only negatives were some leftover dirt from nests and a bit of rock grain. The moves themselves are sweet and powerful. After traversing the rail, do a powerful transition to gain the face and really fun huecos. After the last hueco move left to edges and a powerful move to a vertical flake. Then gun it tot he chains. A great climb....[more]   Browse More Classics in ID

This is an awesome crag! All the routes are great, and it's a nice hangout, with some of the coolest boulders I've seen at the City.
