Description

A name such as this implies a few things.....for me, it says Saint George isn't as stale as it appears?

Bolted with the drill in reverse, Sand Stoner Reverse has the potential for some nice whippers. Smooth and potent, this overhung scoop has some of the best climbing at the gap. Requiring thought, this route isn't as dumb as it sounds. A combination of finding proper body position and a need to milk the rests will keep the aspiring climber from getting too high too fast. Big powerful moves connect good holds to great holds, plan out your sequence so you don't get burnt out.

Smoking hot! this route is better than it looks.

Location

Sand Stoner Reverse is in the bowl at the entrance of the gap. It is the first route on the left, north facing side across from Puppet Strings.

Protection

Five bolts to an anchor.

Best climb at the gap. Very doable for the aspiring 12a climber. Mar 7, 2011

This is definitely in my top favorite climbs. If you like reachy jugs you will love this! The first 5 or so moves are tough but it's a nice ride after that.

kip is absolutely right. first time on this and i loved great hold after great hold... way fun moves to get you up.. the only thing that stopped me was my lack of endurance... i need to get in shape, this one is fun, not too difficult to piece the moves but will test your endurance! May 8, 2012

Because this is north-facing, it is super nice on a fall day, or early morning in the summer. The belay area is awesome, and the features on the rock are just plain beautiful. It is bolted really well, and all the falls are clean. I would say that the technical crux is the first few moves, but there isn't anything here that is too hard by itself. Stringing it all together... that's something else. Oct 5, 2014

This has recently been re-bolted with glue-ins. Thanks to Todd Perkins for his vision and hard work on this line. May 15, 2017

Being a Red River Gorge climber, this would be an 11d there IMO. It is funny for me to hear people reference a 45' route as endurance, LOL. But that all depends on what you are used to. Ratings aside though, loved this route. The better your route reading and technique is, the easier this will go for you. Mar 21, 2018
