Description

This area is a quite little place just behind the skypager boulder. It is a Steep little crag with some overhanging shist at the bottom, and bullet granite. I think it would be possible to climb here all year, except when its super hot, or super cold. The routes are somewhat short but fun, and there is potential for some more new routes. As far as I now it legal to bolt there, for it is in the National Forest, If I am wrong please, let me know. As far as I know there are three routes Shistlers fist, Far and away, aswell as some oldschool route wich Ron the man Yahnne did, sorry if I spelled your name wrong Ron. This crag is a little out of the way, by Rushmore standards and seldomly sees climbers. Have fun!

Getting There

Starting point, Desert Storm. From here walk downhill towards Baldy. When you get to the bottom of the hill you will find a nice big singletrack trail. Take a left here [towards camp judson}{Right will take you to the main trail for baldy}, and walk downhill for maybe 30 sec. Look for some boulders off to the right in a little valley and maybe you'll see some sort of a foot path, If you dont see a footpath remeber this. When you get to the single track you will come upon a nice wall just off the trail as you walk down the hill the cliff becomes small to nothing and then the valley and boulders become visable. Here you'll want to go uphill for maybe 1 min, passing some boulders wich are nice for bouldering and usually have chalk on them. Behind the main boulder {skypager v7 or so} you will see a little overhanging wall. This is it.

Shannon,

Dewell was the first to get the FA of Skypager and I think he graded it somewhere between V6 and 7. Feb 16, 2009
