DescriptionThis route is fairly easy but I do not suggest leading it, as it is severely runout.
The rock here is quite obviously sandy, so many smears result in ball-bearing like friction. Lots of small rocks embedded in the sandstone provide good holds, though some tend to pop out.
If you have more info on this route, send me a PM.
LocationThis route is located on the left/east side of the northeast face of Mormon Slab, the largest formation in Mormon Rocks. Simply take the dirt road next to the train tracks and drive just north of the slab. The route is the leftmost white waterstreak on the face.
An easy hike takes you to the base of the route. Continuing further west along the base of the slab takes you to the easy 3rd class approach gully. Hike up this to access the anchors for a toprope.
