Access Issue: Closed: Private Property - Sphinx Rock is on private property Details


I'm glad my partner lead this one!! Im not sure if I got the name right since I dont have my book with me. But, this sits on Honed Rock. If looking at Sphinx from the road, this is approached the same way, but, sits about 100-200 yards to the right.

When you get to Honed Rock, this is the line of bolts that goes through a steep slab dissected by a roof/overlap. Climb up slab past 2 bolts to the overlap where you can place a mid sized stopper. Pull over the roof, and you still have a few sketchy moves before the next bolt which protects the crux slab moves. Go past one more bolt to the top. Walk off left. This one probably deserves an "s" rating as well due to the run out slab moves... Pretty stiff piece of slab climbing!


About 4 bolts, but, bring a couple nuts for the roof/overlap. Safer as a TR.
