Best rock in the Coulee?
Worth doing several times, this gem is pure fun.
Start in a stellar 1" hand crack for the first 15 feet before clipping the first bolt and moving onto the face. Use both sides of the column and aretes up to a thought provoking crux move.
Left of Desert Dessert and Jihad obvious crack to bolted face.
1" cam and 5 bolts to a chain anchor

Low jams might be 1" finger stacks but the crack quickly widens to a solid hand jam size, if alone it would probably be 5.9, as would most of the climb with the exception of the single move 10c crux
