Start in the recessed area and climb the slab that steepens to a bulge at the top. Fun moves on good rock and one of the best at the grade in the area.


Third route from the left and starting from a recessed area.


8 bolts, anchors

Tons of bolts, anchor is on a huge ledge. Fun short climb. As other people have said, lots of loose sand, grit and dirt.

Decent place to setup a toprope for beginners.

I was thinking the same thing, live_it.
Next time I come back I am going to bring a broom and get rid of the gravel.
Aside from that, the climbing is simple and fun. Toward the top is a crux sequence that requires a bit of thinking, but nothing strenuous at all. The bolts at the top are on a big ledge so it's a great route to teach beginners the basics of anchor set up and rappelling, etc. Dec 15, 2015

I headed back today and tried to clean off the route a bit with my friend Trek. It was hilarious, took him about 45 minutes, and he came down bragging about how clean it was (I didn't think he did a very good job :D). It is much better now, with most of the gravel no longer present on the route, but still could use some work to make it prime.

Climbed this route the other day. Clean fun route. It was breezy and gravel was falling from above. The anchor ledge had lots gravel on it. That ledge will probably never remain clean for long. It was a good lead route for my partner. Plenty of bolts and nice ledge at the top. May 14, 2017
