Description

If Comfortably Numb is the must-do trad line, Misty is the sport route not to be missed at Sand Rock. From crimpers to thin moves on a bulge to positive holds on steep overhang, Misty has it all. An outstanding and memorable lead.

Location

Starts near the right end of the Sun Wall buttress, about 20' right of First Black in Space.

Protection

Seven bolts, bolted anchors.

My favorite route at Sand Rock. Has a little bit of everything and some fun sequences. Make sure you bring your helmet for this one, there is a backwards fall risk into the bolder at the base if you took an awkward fall before the second bolt. Jan 20, 2017

Good route, cool pebbles to begin with and ends with jugs at the top. Jan 18, 2016

Is it true someone died on this route in the last year by falling from around the second bolt and hitting the large boulder at the bottom of the route? Jul 29, 2013

My favorite lead in the East so far! Highly recommended to all! May 12, 2013
I only did this climb once before I moved away from the area in 2009. I want to do it again so bad. I took a couple falls trying to work out the crux down low. It's so balancy and feels really sketch. The rest is just pure fun. Nov 15, 2012

The biggest jugs you'll ever let go of! 10b. A must do route. Can get busy on the weekend. There are no kiddie bolts on this one. If 10b is your limit you will love them all. Starts from the ground not from the top of the big boulder. Mar 29, 2012
A bolt was added high on the route, below the chains, removing the pump crux and scary (but safe) longer fall potential. SO, given that all the risk, suspense, and challenge of the route has been removed, I recommend that the grade be lowered to 10a, or even 9+ unless the kiddie bolt is removed. Jan 15, 2012

The scene of my first whipper! It's a reasonably safe route, but has good size fall potential if you get pumped and come off high on the route. I think I popped off trying to clip bolt 5 or 6, and took an exciting 25 footer. I also wouldn't want to fall getting to bolt #3 following the crux of the route.

The grade seems a little high (I'd suggest 10b), but then again I do this route every time I come to Sand Rock...classic. Feb 5, 2008

Crux is down low...from between the second and third bolt, it's straight cruising from there, up. Power thorugh it.

No doubt, one of the best routes for the area. Mar 29, 2007
