This crag may be on Private Property! Details
The access situation here is a bit murky. According to "Shelf Road Rock", the crag is likely located on state land that is leased to a local rancher. Climbers should treat this area as though it were private property. Keep a low profile, leave your dogs at home, and keep the noise down.
DescriptionCapital Outlay climbs a beautiful, cream arete on good edges and nice pockets. Although the arete is guarded by a rather savage crux to clear the low belly, the upper prow is fairly sustained in itself, making for a fully-engaging outing.
Stick clip the first bolt, then teeter up precarious choss to reach a steep swell of flawless stone. Make a big crank from an obvious mono to reach better pockets. Invisible feet make it difficult to mount the slab, then follow good but spaced pockets up the right side of the arete, occasionally groping around to the left for the odd hidden edge.
