Description

After climbing 20' or so of easy wide crack up a ramp, step up to the plate to the steep, left-arching crack. The crack opens and closes as it goes through many pods. Reaching through these pods often results in good hand jams. Make an awkward last move to clip the chains dangling in space!

Location

Begin 12 feet to the left of Unknown II. The shiny chains hanging in space obviously mark the route.

Protection

A #5 and maybe a #6 Camalot for the beginning wideness. Bring singles of #0.5, 0.75, 1, 3 Camalot and doubles of #2.

Slim: “Isn't this route in the original Desert Rock (i.e. circa '88)?”

Same location but different route. That would be Sand Blast which goes atop the pillar then up the right crack (right side of the hourglass) to the rim which is wide and was done in 1982. Note that in the Desert Rock (1988) guide, that this area is referred to as Supermank.

It’s amusing that there was a plaque for Make the Grade with a rating of 5.11- (a?) but that the current consensus is upper 5.10. Apparently the route didn’t make the grade. May 27, 2016

A must do 5.10 In this area. Bring a #5 and #6 unless you want to run it out with decking potential. Awesome upper crux! May 24, 2016
