Description Suggest change

This is a fun sport crag with quality routes from 5.8 to 5.11 on solid granite. The routes here are similar in character to, but longer than, the routes on the neighboring Punk Rock. Try them all, but I particularly enjoy Shaking the Pope's Hand (5.8) and Smack the Smack the Cold Booty (5.11b). All routes (with the possible exception of the 5.10 roof route at the far right of the crag) can be set up with a TR, although access around the back side of Mt. Boner is a bit more involved than for Punk Rock. Just follow your nose and be prepared for a few low fifth class moves.

L->R:

A. Slap and Tickle, 10-, 1p, bolts.
B. Unknown, 5, 1p, gear & bolt.
C. La Femme Delight, 5, 1p, gear.
D. Shake Hands With The Unemployed, 7+, 1p, bolts +/- gear.
E. Dirty No-Gooders, 6, 1p, bolts.
F. Smack the Cold Booty, 11, 1p, bolts & gear.
G. Side Effects, 10 or 11, 1p, bolts.
HG. Unknown, 11, 1p, bolts & gear.
I. Confession, 11, 1p, 45', bolts.
J. Shaking The Pope's Hand, 7, 1p, 45', bolts.
K. Power House Ministry, 10+, 1p, 45', bolts.

Getting There Suggest change

Follow the directions to the Ironclads. Hop out of your car and make the grueling 1 minute approach to Mt. Boner, the obvious crag to the left of Punk Rock. Unlike Punk Rock, you will not be able to belay out of the back of your pickup, but it's pretty close.
