Jesse B meets the Wizard.


Great climb with a bit of everything. Thin fingers in a corner seemed to be the crux. Great rests all through it.


Next crack system left of Desert Solitaire.


Small hands to green Alien. Double or even triple up in the #1 and #0.75 Camalot size. One QD for piton at the top.

Good moves, rocks, pro and rests. My partner and I both thought this was better than any pitch on Desert Solitaire.

The route is closer to around 100', so a single 60m rope works to get back down. Really fun route!
