Description

The western side of the ridge proper. Great afternoon and evening sun. The rock is generally a bit better on this side. Good landings for the most part, but some problems are quite tall. Be careful!

I have left the numbers on the original problems posted by JJ Schlick, from his topo.

Getting There

Follow the trail around to the right past the fork. Problems will be obvious on the right.

Yeah you are right, I suppose. I changed it. Apr 16, 2012
With the aid of the panoramic pics and the previously supplied route pics, doesn't Vitamin V-less occur after Sandstone Violence? With some other juggling and way too much time looking at the monitor, I've got:

Sandstone Violence
Vitamin V-less
Bottom of the Barrel
Mr. Clean
The Prostrator
Early Bird
Forgotten Finger Crack
The Bane of Vince
Twelve
Etc.

This could be off as I'm doing this just from the evidence of the pictures and the panoramics. Hope this helps.

Thanks for taking care of that Chris. I think that piece of trash has been there for over a month. Thankfully with the exception of that chair and some chalk graffiti I think the climbers at the dodge have been pretty low impact Dec 5, 2009

To whoever left the folding canvas chair up here, I have it in my car. You can pick it up or I can bring it to Boulders for you. Dec 4, 2009
