BETA PHOTO: Pocket Pool


This climb goes up and around an arete / buttress. Pull the sandstone pockets all the way up, feeling fairly overhung. The crux is pulling over the bulge after the 3rd bolt. The start is a little exposed, watch out for the bat guano.


This is the 4th route to the right of the large cave. Its just to the right of Campground Beatdown and Fat F*&% Five on the mini buttress.


4 bolts to anchors

Two variations on this one. One goes left of the bolt line with big moves between big holds and finishes almost directly up the arete.

The one described here follows closely-spaced juggy pockets, pulls up/right around the bulge, and follows the bolt line more directly.

Either one goes at 5.10a/b, with the left line feeling just a smidge harder.
