Description

In the center of the east face on Window Rock are a series of perfect hand cracks that don't quite make it to the ground. Look for a bolt below the start of two of these cracks. The left crack is Good Times, and the right crack is Pure Pleasure. Both are 5.7, and both are enjoyable.

There is a tree at the base of the routes to the right. Start at this tree and traverse left on the slabs to the bolt. Climb the left crack to its end and belay on a big ledge with horizontal placements for an anchor. When your second gets up there, go check out the Window up and left of your belay ledge. Huge bathtubs abound on this rock.

Descend with a one-rope rappel off a two-bolt anchor located 20 feet to climber's right of the route, landing at the tree where you started.

I was actually pretty bummed to see how high the crack was on this route. I was expecting two (Pure Pleasure and this) beautiful long cracks. This is not the case. The cracks start about halfway up the route. The cracks are also way easy. So yeah! If you're looking for some easy crack-climbing, this is the place. And, as other commenting peeps have mentioned, it's not difficult climbing straight to the vertical crack. There are great handholds and footholds. Jul 23, 2012
Climb straight up to the bolt...it's all there. Sometimes these feel like 5.6...sometimes they feel like 5.7. The Calderone guide downrates them to 5.5.....I don't think that right though, 6/7 seems more like it. What do you think? Sep 27, 2005

I would skip the traverse and climb strait to the crack. Using the bolt as you first piece. Great warm up climb to get to know the City of Rocks area. This wall has a lot of easier climbs that are fun and well protected. Jun 27, 2005
