Ian Huang playing around on High Noon


A vertical, flaring crack that rises 15 ft. above the center of the Gunsmoke traverse.

Climb juggy rails up to a vertical crack with a big move to the sloping lip. An easy mantel gets you onto the ledge, ending the problem. Walk off the ramp to the left.


A pad may be desirable as the ground is hard packed dirt.

You'll want a pad or two for sure. Bottom moves are easier for tall people, but a hand/foot match up high may favor short folks. Crux sidepull is not as good as you expect and feels much better on a cold day. The mantle is easy, but the holds/crack toward the back of the shelf often have sand/dirt on them..may want to go up top and brush them off beforehand. Not strength intensive, but somewhat committing. Easiest descent is to continue up from the mantle about 8' following a low angle handcrack, then go straight back until you can walk down easy ledges angling left.
