Eyeing the crux of Special Ed while reluctantly de...


Ledgy climbing in a shallow dihedral leads to a fantastic left-hand flake before climbing through the small roof with a finger crack through it near the top. Very strenuous and committing moves through the roof crux.
Then, good climbing in another shallow dihedral to the anchors.


Two routes left of the easiest route, Fun, at Dead Cholla. Look for the great, positive flake left of the bolt line about halfway up the wall.


Five bolts to a two bolt anchor. The first bolt is a bit high but the climbing to that point isn't hard.
I liked a small cam (.3 or .2 BD camalot) in the crack at the crux roof but this isn't required. Small nuts would be great too.
Like many of the anchors at Dead Cholla, there are no lowering chains on these anchors. We just left our draws on the bolts and grabbed them from the top on our way out.
