Description

Sunny, on a late June morning. We saw 4 or 5 parties hike past us as we were climbing. It was a Saturday, but I would call that crowded. The rock is good quality granite - great for friction and not rough on my hands.

Getting There

The approach is the same as other climbs at Jurassic Park. The approach hike took us 20 minutes. Left Hand Rock was the first rock with a line of bolts we saw.

A. Left Dihedral, 9, 1p, gear.
B1. Guilted Willy, 9, 1p, 85', TR.
B2. ?Gilded Lily?, 8, 1p, 90', bolts.
