Me on the First Ascent.
The climb starts below a bush and ramps left up soft stone. It begins with OW into tight hands inside the OW. It then goes through some good finger locks up to another ledge. It then goes OW to a hand jam to finger tips up to the top. Some of the moves are committing and the stone is sandy and soft. It could be better with traffic and anchors.
I'm Calling Your Bluff is located to the north of The Bant and Stolen Knee about 150 ft. It is a left ramping flake to the left of a small slab/cave.
I took Camalots: 2#5, 1#6, 1#4, 1#3, 2#2, 2#1, and a set of aliens or TCUs to fill in the gaps. I used more sizes for anchors: some hand gear in a crack to the south. Make sure to place a bomber cam @ the top for a directional. We then walked south to Stolen Knee and set anchors there to lower off of. I will probably anchor bolt the route later.
