Private Property? Details
Allegedly, this may be private property, and the landowner does not want climbers on the rock.
DescriptionThis starts right behind the big cottonwood, and you should stay aware of this same tree as you proceed, cause if you come off on toprope in places you're headed right at it. (Don the hardhat, and tell your belayer to pay attention.) The rock is also questionable in places: two chunks came off as we climbed it, the first of which would have obliterated me (the belayer) if I'd been directly underneath the climber. So, the belayer should stand off to the left, which gives you a better view anyway...
Still want to climb this thing? Take the direct bouldery start up sharp stone, then follow the short crack system before striking up and left at the bulge, about 25 feet up. An alternate would be to continue right with the crack which soon becomes overhanging and probably a bit tougher than the line I've just described.
It is a cool climb, in spite of the little risks involved. This one hasn't been climbed much; there's no chalk evident.
