Description 

Sandworm Rock is a small and grainy formation just south of the Anasazi wall. East of Snickers, and past the southeast end of the Little Hunk.

Getting There 

Most straightforward way is to approach towards the Little Hunk, and hook right into the corridor between the Little Hunk and Snickers. Walk through the corridor. At the end of the hunk, the Anasazi wall and Sandworm Rock will be visible to the southeast (looker's leftish).

There is a more direct way walking past Life's A Bitch but finding the wall is less obvious.

Let's play... Master and Servant.This is an .11d handcrack! In the center of Sandworm rock, look for the crack splitting the steep bulge, widening to OW size while mercifully keeping good hands in the back. Steep and powerful pulling leads through the wide section before the angle eases. Reach the top on shallow flaring jams stepping right through three vertical slashes.This could be an amazing climb but for the abysmal rock quality. The large sharp razor grains are bad enough... and then the...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
