Description

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

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

Protection

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Seems like the "skull graffiti" has been replaced by a new graffiti: "you are the view art".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