Access Issue: June 1, 2018 - All Los Alamos/White Rock climbing areas closed due to Stage III Fire Restrictions Details

Description [Suggest Change]

Sharon's Sandbag is another standard-fare 5.9 White Rock crack. It seemed pretty reasonable for the grade, although leaders should be comfortable with smaller gear.

Start just left of the graffiti. Climb up to a platform below an obvious finger crack.

The finger crack opens in a few places, but generally you'll be crimping your way on small edges on either side. Mantel onto a 2nd platform 5' below the rim.

Gear is nuts and TCUs, but there are occasional placements for thin-hands-size cams as well.

Location [Suggest Change]

Start just left of the skull graffiti- Sharon's Sandbag is the right of the 3 obvious cracks on this face on the left side of the NNP.

Climb #6 in
Left side of the New New. "Avalauncher" is the 3rd from right, or 4th from left. Someone with photoshop should number this. My notes say the number is (L to R) 1,2,3,4,5,6

Protection [Suggest Change]

Nuts and cams to 2".
2-bolt anchor, reachable from the top

Seems like the "skull graffiti" has been replaced by a new graffiti: "you are the view art". Jun 25, 2017
