One of the best sport climbs in the area comprising a slight overhang, smooth holds, continuous movement, a true top-out, a hint of a rest, and a touch of route finding in the form of hold selection. Pull up unto the orange band of rock, traverse right to the first bolt, and float endless crimps to the summit ledge.


To the climber's right of the Catacombs approach, locate the beautiful, overhanging alligator skin above a low, wide cave and and a band of orange rock.


6 bolts to a bolted anchor above the top-out ledge.

This is a really beautiful sport climb on a striking face. According to Cole Fennel's book, the FA was Clay Frisbie and he led it ground up on gear! Bolts were added later. Ponder that one!

Also, I've heard this called "the hardest 11a sport climb in the state." Does that make it 11b? Maybe. I just know this is MUCH harder than Sonny Jim or Horseshoes and Hand Grenades. Maybe they are 10d. Sep 19, 2015
