Description

Reasonably well-protected friction/edgy face past 7 bolts leads to a bolted anchor/rap. Take a 60 meter rope to descend as the rap is about 95'.

Not a standout climb but worth doing when in the area; it makes a good warm-up climb before heading uphill to do Welcome to Joshua Tree.

Location

This climbs up the middle of the dome shaped formation on the lower part of the Mary Worth Buttress.

Protection

7 bolts to a bolted anchor/rap (all 3/8").

I thought this was a nice little route on decent rock and with adequate protection. Apr 7, 2008
