Hanging out on Richter Scale.
Above the curve in the BLM road on the north side of the bank, left of a major gully on a prow of rock is this nice climb. It is much to the left of Dave Dangle and Surreal Estate Wall, but it can be approached by walking along the cliffs from that approach. This line ascends just left of a left-facing corner, up over a small roof/overlap and to the face above. It has surprising clean rock and nice moves.
8 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

I climbed this 2 years ago and although the lower section was pretty good. I found a lot of large loose blocks just over the big roof at the top. Maybe someone cleaned this up?

This route is the cleanest of the bunch in this section. Seemed safe, and was pretty fun.
