Access Issue: In critical habitat area for the Desert Tortoise Details

Description

The route start off on a low-angle slab with holds in all the right places. Features get slimmer and slimmer and the angle steeper and steeper as the route continues. At the headwall the moves get really interesting and fun. A few tricky moves up to the horizontal cracks gets you through the crux and to the jug-pulling to the anchors.

Location

Just to the right of Czech Frogs Say Qua on the corner between the left and right sides of Kelly's Rock.

Protection

10 bolts to rap anchors

I thought this was just as difficult as K-5 (to the left of this around the corner at Kelly's rock), thus I'd rate it a 5.10b. Great route though. The crux for me was right after the slab discontinued.

You can't really see the anchors from below, but they are up there! Oct 9, 2012

As the slab ends some thin and interesting face climbing shows up. A couple of iffy moves gets you onto the good and steep jugs to the anchor. Oct 2, 2017

Could be made independent from the route to its right by starting up the left side of the low ridge / slab. Difficulty and style quality more in keeping with the upper part.
Perhaps drill three new bolts - (current first bolt is kind of superfluous anyway). Nov 19, 2018
