Description

Follow crack up past horizontals to first of four bolts. Follow bolt line up, then exit to the left to the anchor slings on the large block. Crux may be the friction between the bolts.

Location

Route is on the left side of Ginger's Face. Rap the route via the slings on the block to the left.

Protection

Rack single from .5 to 3.5 inch (only a few cams needed for gear, as the crack section is short). Well bolted.

There are 2 belay/rappel bolts (somewhat hidden) at the very top of the cliff above Gun for the Sun, eliminating the need for the ugly wad of slings around the block. (90 foot rappel) Jan 22, 2015

Rap slings were gone when we arrived. We did add one 1" sling and bootied a faded 1/2" sling off the tree and added it too. Someone go back and add some more!

PS don't rap the tree..it's a weak anchor (looked dead) and besides...if it's still alive then let it be to struggle in the harsh desert. Feb 24, 2014

Great route. Rap slings were back when we did the route today and looked fairly new. Nov 24, 2012

Rap slings were gone when I did the route today, so if you want to rap off bring some webbing (double length) and rap rings.

Cams from 2.5 to 4 inches work well for the anchor. Dec 19, 2011
