Description

This rock offers one easy route 5.7, one harder route at 5.11, and a good top rope from the anchors 5.10. It is located right by the trail up to Hrum Hroom, off to the right once you gain the saddle. Not only does it provide a quick and easy approach, but it also boasts a good view and great routes for the grade. I highly recommend anyone willing to go there and climb.

The Joker 5.9x follows up just left of the arete into the flake up top on the left and then follows huge crystals to the top. The arete staying on the arete proper is an old 5.10 TR that was recently bolted. The face to the right of the arete is the classic Sundogs 5.11d. The bolted face on the west face is the original route 5.6 Mar 24, 2016

Spotted a new sport route going up the arête. First bolt looked odd, until you thought about the step over to join the arête. Looked 5.10ish to the right of the step over and a 30 foot drop. The arête had good crystals with easy foot and hand. Step over a flake, then to the summit. Summit had an odd conglomeration of bolts for anchors, but someone was very nice and placed two new bolt/anchors. Another sport route was left of this and went up an obvious face. Old pitons under a shelf up and left. Can't find beta on it, but we TR'ed it from the previous climb, felt 5.8-.9 ish. Small feet and fingers. Sep 14, 2015

Anyone know who bolted and what the name of the "new" line is. It follows up the old 5.10 TR arête and The Joker. Jul 13, 2015
