Tony Bubb leads 'Dirtbag' (10b) at Chuckawalla Wal...


This climb is the fourth from the right on the wall, past Sands of Blood on the junky-looking blunt arete, Apostasy, and Solace.

Descend 150 meters from the parking lot to the wall and walk to a line of bolts perhaps 7 meters left or the right-hand edge of the main buttress. A line of 4 bolts leads to chains up top.

The climbing is mostly positive, but a crux up top is a little awkward and thin, so it might not be the best warm up, particularly for shorter climbers. I found this route just a little more difficult than its 5.10a neighbor.


A rack of draws, plus something up top for the chain anchor.

Finish was exciting, with a delicate sloper just before the chains.

Great climb. easier crux at about half way up and then a harder crux at the top. get to the horizontal crack like thing and traverse to the right a little bit and then go up to the crimpers and clip from there. i almost always end up grabbing the chains to clip this one.
