Access Issue: Portions of the approach and cliffs of this area are on private land. Details
In 2015, Access Fund acquired key privately owned access parcels when foreclosed on by the bank to keep it in climbing-friendly hands. Please park and camp on Access Fund property and take the new trail down. Please donate today ataccessfund.org/homestead to secure permanent access and conservation of the Homestead.
Climbs the first 3 bolts of Dead Sea then moves right on the ledge. A body length higher on the next ledge most will reach down and unclip the bolt to reduce rope drag or you can use longer draws on the 3rd and 4th bolts. Gets really interesting after the half way point when one begins climbing a light colored tufa. It stays in your face all the way to the anchors. A little grungy in the middle with a move to a flake that looks really scary but is quite solid.
Same as Dead Sea which is about 100 feet right of the rock wall/cave area. Big boulders against the wall here.
