Description

Start on the south (rear; canyon) side of the Sherlock Spire formation. Climb an obvious, steep, flake/crack (a bit loose) up to a horizontal. Traverse left along the horizontal and then step up to a stance. Climb a thin, varnished crack (harder than it first appears) to the top.

Location

Start on the south (rear) face of the free-standing pillar (Sherlock Spire) that is about 100 feet right of R Baskerville Crack.

Protection

Anchor rope around horns on the summit to rappel from. Medium cams and anchor rope needed to rig a TR.

Murf;.....I think he ran out of puns.......(It's difficult to come up with route names when you are banging them out five at a time....).......question mark one, question mark two, question mark three.......easy peesy..... Oct 22, 2010

Todd if that's the name, that's cool. I also love repeats, especially if they are unintentional...

Somehow I never figured Todd S. would name two climbs ? or ??, but I guess stranger things have happened (those link to other climbs with the question mark moniker). Oct 22, 2010

Murf...the name of the climb is ?????.......that's all there is...(It may be hard to pronounce.....)........It's sort of like ZZZZZZZZZ, Heeeecht, Schnnnnnnuffffttt, etc.....FA party can name the climb anything they wish.....this one is ??????. (Not to be confused with ????......or ???......or??...or?......)... Oct 22, 2010

GW - For some reason I find the question marks are kinda annoying. May I suggest "Unknown"? I do have to wonder how you know the FA but not the name. Those two bits of info usually go hand in hand.

Since all the routes are Swain routes, maybe you are Todd and are playing a trick on the poor users of MP. If so, the pressure is too much, I need to know the names of these obscurities! Oct 21, 2010
