OK, so you've hiked over to Jurassic Park to climb such area classics as Lichen Lung and Mud in your Eye and lo and behold, that upon your arrival, topropes dangle from every worthwhile climb on the cliff. What do you do?

Well, the smart person will probably go climb elsewhere, but if you're like me and decide that you must wait for some of the fun climbs at Jurassic Park, you can at least get a warm-up on this climb.

Located in the middle of the cliff, between the Sore-o-Pod group of climbs and Slot-o-Saurus, this climb starts as short chimney with wedged chockstones and finishes adjacent to a large dead tree.

The crux is mounting the chockstones at the start (difficult and weird 5.8). Continue up a gully (possible stinging nettles) to the dead tree. Stem up the dead tree to some short cracks that could be considered the "fun" part of the climb. Rap off the anchors just below the top of the cliff.


Standard rack.

Yes, this is indeed a piece of crap. Just go stand in line for something else if needed: it's a more productive use of your time. Mar 29, 2008

Agreed, this route it pretty lame. Bring your gardening tools if you do it. May 29, 2014

The 10 feet of OK cracks at the top don't even come close to making up for the chockstones and bush filled cracks below it. Jul 26, 2016
