BETA PHOTO: 70m rope took us to the belay ledge, tie knots in ...

Description 

Begin on a small ledge with a tree. Climb face with a vertical seam, pockets and some horizontal cracks past 12 bolts. First bolt is a little high, can climb straight up to it, or traverse to it from the left, both options have bomber holds, but a fall here could send you down a nasty scree chute.

Location 

Hackberry Creek area, tall buttress approximately 30 feet north of the waterfall. Scramble down the left side of the waterfall. Belay in a gully/ there's tree there you can use as an anchor.

Protection 

12 bolts to 2 cold shuts, 1 double-rope rap down.

Fun climb! I'm guessing many of the bolts could be skipped in favor of gear placements if so desired...


70 m rope will get you within 3-5m of the belay ledge. Easy to swing left and downclimb the gully. Chains on top are nice change of pace from all the webbing out here.
