BETA PHOTO: Sargeant Rock and Rock Star, the shallow crack tha...


This route ascends the middle of the Sargeant Rock. Start via easy face to gain a somewhat shallow crack. Towards the end of the crack, a bolt is encountered ushering one up the face past two more bolts.


Hands and smaller pro with 3 bolts. Descend the backside.

Good climbing on this but it's a sporty lead. Easist descent is via the bolted anchor just above and right where this climb finishes.

Fun climb, and in the sun most of the day (a plus in the winter!)
Relatively easy (5.10a ish) crack and chimney moves with, in my opinion, a crux being transitioning from the crack to the face for the first bolt (I cursed a lot). You can set up a top rope for this by climbing the 5.4 climb around the corner. I'm surprised that I don't see more people on this climb...
