Description

Awesome little climb on the underside of a left-facing open book dihedral. Mixed face, crack and slab climbing all in one little 5.6 climb. Begins atop some blocks at the base.

Location

This climb is located to the right of the War Zone, an obvious area where hard face climbing leads directly up from the desert floor.

Protection

One set of nuts up to 3", same for cams.

Did this one with the family on Valentines. Clean climb in the shade, great confidence builder for the kids. Please use the trail, there is a lot of traffic here. Also the down climb (which is super easy) is NOT down into the cave / arch system. Go a little bit farther south (past the first obvious gully) and it is much easier. Feb 16, 2016

Instead of lowering or rappelling from the top, another option is to walk towards the back and around for an easy downwards scramble to the ground. Nov 5, 2012

this is a really fun route, that can be enjoyed by everyone! Great route to introduce someone to trad. The route eats gear. There is a lot of drag up top, even with slings to extend it. the rope also gets caught in the thin crack on the leaning sidewall. This makes Top roping this route very difficult. Also may want to rappel this instead of having your belayer lower you to reduce drag. jump on this one, you will enjoy it! Nov 4, 2012
