Climber leading up Under the Sleeping Giant (5.6) ...


Awesome little climb on the underside of a left-facing open book dihedral. Mixed face, crack and slab climbing all in one little 5.6 climb. Begins atop some blocks at the base.


This climb is located to the right of the War Zone, an obvious area where hard face climbing leads directly up from the desert floor.


One set of nuts up to 3", same for cams.

this is a really fun route, that can be enjoyed by everyone! Great route to introduce someone to trad. The route eats gear. There is a lot of drag up top, even with slings to extend it. the rope also gets caught in the thin crack on the leaning sidewall. This makes Top roping this route very difficult. Also may want to rappel this instead of having your belayer lower you to reduce drag. jump on this one, you will enjoy it!

Instead of lowering or rappelling from the top, another option is to walk towards the back and around for an easy downwards scramble to the ground.
