Description

This is a fun and varied climb that goes from slab to overhang. There is a bit of grit in some spots due to a lack of ascents, but it should clean up nicely with more traffic. It also currently has a single anchor bolt with a carabiner to lower off of.

At the toe of the buttress, just to the right of Orange Juice Avenue is a prominent arching roof. There is a crack/seam in the center of this roof and Sink Like A Stone follows the bolted line straight up to this point.

The bottom third of the route is an 11b/c slab on darker rock. The middle third transitions onto the gold headwall and is defined by a pair of zig-zagging hand traverses and mantles. Shake out before launching into the final section of the route - a gently overhanging crack and face. A piece (around 1-2") is useful for plugging in the crack between two of the bolts. Fight the pump to the single bolt anchor.

Protection

9 bolts, optional 1" piece
