Easy climbing on good holds, the crux is between the third and fourth bolts requiring the climber to reach on not so good holds, great climb for the beginning leader or top roper.


First Climb you will see on Shiprock, farthest left of the three.


5 bolts, rap hangers.

Easily the most polished route of Polished Rocks. Enjoyable and easy climb that's great for all order of beginners in any manner of foot wear. As such, the good holds and feet are destined and well on their way to becoming shiny and spit polished marbles of dolomite. Civilization will never look good on Tarzan. Sep 6, 2017
