Right of the cave and up a small slope are two interesting lines with cruxy starts leading to technical and vertical face climbing. Guns 'n Posers is the right of the two. A tricky start leads to a sharp vertical face. It is a good warm up on largely sound rock.


Ten draws and a rope.

Fun climb. Would be nice if the last bolt was about a foot to the right. Sketchy clip, especially for someone who is 5'1". Aug 13, 2015

Took the whip yesterday from high up in the corner. Exciting fall with no major damage. Just an FYI for anyone scared about being that far out right from the bolt. Went back up & did it straight up off the good crimps, much closer to the bolt line. A bit harder but 5 or 6 moves less than using the corner. Jul 15, 2013

Added 2 ASCA quicklinks to anchor 8/26/12. Was previously just 2 carabiners on coldshuts in a rope-twisting configuration. Biners were in good condition, so the added quicklinks make for a much smoother lower.... Aug 27, 2012

Listed as 12a in the new guide and that felt about right to me. It's a short crux with easy climbing before and after the crux. It's a little spooky though up high with the climbing far right of the bolts. Oct 27, 2008
