In critical habitat area for the Desert Tortoise


A short, but fun little route with lots of interesting features to grab. Lots of positive jugs lead into some sloping side-pulls and stemming in a large runnel. At the top the route changes personality to a short slabby section.

Todd Goss gives this route 3/3 stars in his guidebook. This is a great route in my opinion as well.


This is the 6th route from the left side. It is just to the left of K-3

Climbed this today. Pretty fun route on really sharp limestone. Was cold in the shade/wind in the afternoon. A little soft for 5.9 but fun.

Pretty fun route. Feels like all the holds are sideways! Some fun stemming moves as well. All the routes up to the anchors in this region are very similar. Good change from the Granite in City of Rocks!
