In critical habitat area for the Desert Tortoise


This route starts off with some thin moves on the slab. After the first bolt of Redolence move to the right and follow the line of bolts that continue up and to the right. Holds are thin and require some thought up until the 4th bolt or so, after which the climb changes personality. More features are available in the little runnels that have formed. The difficulty eases, and the bolts get farther and farther apart up to the ring anchors.

When lowering off this route you will end up 30 feet or more to the right of your belayer. Have a second clean the climb. Don't try to clean this while lowering, or on rappel. You will get some nasty scratches on the sharp rock when you swing.


On the left side of the caves at Black and Tan. Shares the first bolt of Redolence then skirts off to the right.


8 or 9 bolts to rings (assuming I recall correctly).
