BETA PHOTO: Climbers on Headstone Rock (((2-29-2004)))


This route climbs the south face of Headstone Rock between Cryptic and the Southwest Corner. Good climbing on vertical edges, but not on par with it's neighbors due to position and lack of exposure. It remains a TR for those reasons as well as the fact that bolts would detract from the nearby classics.

great route......directly to the left of cryptic....small holds great friction. My favorite climb on headstone.

A good, easy route, but I like Cryptic better.
