Description

This 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.

Protection

3-4 bolts, anchor at top.

Enjoyable. However- First bolt, 10ft up, seems to be pulling out. Some of the flakes wiggle visibly with little force, and much of the route is hollow. So, seems a tad sketch. Dec 30, 2016
