Description

This climb doesn't get any stars in the guidebook and also states that it would be a nightmare to fall before the second bolt. I would disagree with both.
If the rock were a little more solid near the first bolt, then I would give it even another star.
The start is pretty casual and leads to a long, but not too hard pull, to get to the second bolt.
Getting to the third bolt is one of the funniest moves on the entire climb. A dynamic move off a small crimper/pocket to a jug pocket.
The whole climb is quite steep and the feet are poor when you near the anchors which are quite a thrill to clip if you're pumped.

Location

3rd route from the left side of Pocket Rocks.

Protection

3 bolts and anchors.

Going from the big hole near the 3rd bolt to chains is quite a stretch (hence the name). I've seen several leaders chicken out there. The holds at the chains are not stellar and beware of the cactus on the prow above! Jun 5, 2013
Hey Tyler,
Any idea what the D stands for in the FA by D. Mullens. May 18, 2009
