Description [Suggest Change]

This is a 200 foot high crag below the Northwest face of Medlicott Dome. The best feature is the long crack Sticks and Stones 5.10-.

Topsy Turvey 5.11c and Friends in High Places 5.11a ascend moderate wide cracks to hard thin cracks up wild roofs. Centinella 5.11d and Slim Pickins 5.12a also look good as hard bolted face climbs. Lost in Face 5.11 is a scary wandering route.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

This cliff is best approached by the good trail leading to Bachar-Yerian. Just as you near the rocks near mid-hike head off left, east bushwhacking to the base.

To descend, you could rap off Friends in High Places with two 60 meter ropes or walk up to the top and east along the slab/vegetation line until it is possible to cross through some low cliffs and back to the base, about 15 minutes back to the pack.

Sticks and Stones was always good but pretty dirty, so it got a top-down cleanin' this summer (2017), complete with bush trimmin' (Phrasing!). Hopefully some traffic keeps it a little cleaner for a while. Can be done in one long, 200 footer, easy to manage the drag. Great pitch, get on it! Dec 4, 2017
