Difficult start move leads to easier climbing to the 2nd bolt. Launch into the crux for a few more bolts, then arrive at a good rest. Awkward climbing for a few more bolts takes you to the anchor.This route shares anchors with Small Arms, so climbing that route makes it easy to hang draws on this one if you want to....[more]   Browse More Classics in NV

The route on the little wall in the back is called by one of two names: #1 - "Fuck yeah there's a route over there" if you're looking at the crag from the approach. #2 - "Fuck yeah there's a route over here" if you're at the route and looking out. It can also be known as "Poser flesh tastes like chicken". It's 5.11-

RE: The route on the back wall. I did it years ago and it did seem to have a couple of super hard moves....particularly for 5.9.

Left a little Casio wrist watch here a few weeks ago. I live in the area so I went back to look for it. The watch was gone but someone had put up a TR for a few days. If any one has found this the watch, I would very much love to have it back. Thanks!
