Description

Why is it called Headstone Surfer? That is a typical question. Check out the chest high boulder at the base of the climb. This used to be perched in the middle of the climb. Hugh says there's about as much underground as what's visible above ground. He "surfed" it out on the FA.

Great route with a stemming crux. It's not over after that though. The dihedral goes on and on and on it seems like. Stellar rock ion a beautiful setting.

Location

Funk Rock City, near the right end of the wall. You can't miss an acute dihedral with a sport route on each wall and a nice looking crack in the middle.

Protection

Bring a standard rack, make sure you've got some finger sized stuff for the crux and some longer draws or slings to make sure the rope runs good. I think a 60m rope is necessary to get down. Better take one just to be sure.
