Description

Perhaps this is best described as a boulder problem that will take gear, rather than a trad route. This 5 meter stretch of rock does not offer enough moves to justify tying in. As soon as you are out of groundfall range, you are done. Perhaps the merit in roping off is in lowering off of the anchor above and right, as for the 'unnamed' sport route a meter or two to the East.

Location

This is to the far right side of the East end of Inca Stone.... There is a 3' tall "nail" of rock sticking out of the ground at the base of a small crack system and 2 bolts and an anchor just to the right of it. The crack is Prayer Wheel.

Protection

According to the book, a standard rack plus a 3.5" cam. But seriously... how much gear can you place on a 5-meter-tall 5.8?

Have to say it was a bit taller than 15 feet, Maybe 20-25 but still only took 2-3 pieces that will actually do anything due to the to the small rock wall behind/under the belay. You can very easily go in between this route and its neighbor to add some spice if desired. Aug 26, 2013
