Access Issue: Ancient Petroglyphs Details
Because of the petroglyphs the routes behind the fence are now closed. Please respect the boundary and don't climb these routes. All of the other routes are OPEN.
Description [Suggest Change]
Start from the top of the middle block at the left end of the wall and head up the heavily featured wall to an anchor over the roof of a small cave-like rest hole. Stopping here keeps the grade at 5.11c and makes for a good warm-up, but the two-bolt extension is amazing and full-value. Pull over the roof and pinch, stem, and straddle up the long, overhanging tufa. Two bolts protect this thirty-foot section of rock that demands both power and precision.
Protection [Suggest Change]
15 draws. A 70m rope is needed to lower from the top anchor, otherwise lower twice.
