Description

P1) Climb steep slab (5.9) with intermittent patina past 8 bolts to an intermediate belay, clip the belay and climb past two more bolts to a bolted belay on a spacious ledge. P2) Climb up and left from the left side of the ledge to a vague arete past 5 bolts via insecure smears (5.10a) to the top of the formation.

Descend the route in 3 rappels with a single 60 meter rope - one rap from the summit to the large ledge, another to the intermediate belay below the large ledge and one more to the base.

The well-protected climbing in a remote location makes this a highly recommended moderate route. While the climbing is good, the view from the top is unparalled and offers far-reaching views of the entire Wonderland, Saddle Rocks and the 29 Palms Marine Corps Base. Three, maybe four, stars out of five.

Location

This high-quality two-pitch face climb is located on the right side of the south-facing, central buttress just right of Yasmine Bleeth.

Protection

P1) 10 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap; P2) 5 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap (all 3/8")
