Passed the tough transition, now for the sustained...


Climb Double Dogleg to the point where it stars leaning left and then cut right to reach a splitter finger crack. Positive jams and edges work up the face to a thin frictiony move at the top that leads right to the bolted anchors.

Fun moves, good rock and bomber gear are found on this route, but the shortness of the climbing independant of Double Dogleg detracts slightly from the overall quality. Three stars out of five.


Immediately right of Rock Candy is this fine route that should not be confused with another quality route with the same name in the Sheep Pass area.


Pro to 3", bolted anchor/rap (3/8")

Yet another fun route. Too bad it's so short. Nice slab finish.

fun! seemed easier than rock candy, but maybe just because it was shorter.

Felt the crux were the last few moves onto the slabs.

Enjoyed this route a great deal. The crux for us was definetely the split from double dogleg over to the thin crack, although the remainder of the route from that point has its challenges. Enjoy!

The hardest part may be making the last unprotected friction move to top out. Make sure you place something in the end of the crack!
