Occupied Campsite Rule In Effect! Details
Any route or boulder problem that starts out of or near an occupied campsite may not be done without first obtaining the campsite occupant's permission.
DescriptionThis is a newer climb, not in any of the books, found it just by chance walking around, but pretty fun if you're in the area. It felt 5.7ish.
The climb is on the back side of "rock 3," pretty much opposite of Ashes, and starts behind a boulder, left of a water trough, and climbs some flakes. The first bolt is about 15' up, if you fall, a huge cats claw bush at the base of the climb will make sure you enjoy the way down.
It climbs past 3 or 4 bolts on some broken flakes, but the bolts did seem solid. It tops out to two bolts for an anchor (no rap) and the walk off is to the climbers left. Enjoyable and worth the walk around for another tick.
