Description [Suggest Change]

Scramble up to a large ledge with bushes and a tree on the west side of the formation. Climb 20 feet to short, right-facing, wide-crack dihedral and roof with a bolt. An old #4 Camalot is useful for protecting moves to bolt. Pull stiff 10+ moves past bolt and into the wide crack (you can also chimney straight into the crack although it didn't look as fun - 5.9+). Once you are into the meat and potatoes, plug a couple pieces of gear, but bolts protect the majority of the widest crack. No need for really wide gear. Really fun if you like it rough.

Location [Suggest Change]

Obvious wide crack on west face of Tombstone.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Singles rack up to #4 camalot. Bolts protect the crux and the final 100 feet of offwidth.


The bolts protecting the offwidth have been chopped. There is still one bolt at the opening roof move. I had one #5 on me which made it a long run out to the #5 placement and then 30 ft or so unprotected to the top. A #5 and #6 or two #5s would be helpful. Mar 30, 2015
