In critical habitat area for the Desert Tortoise Details
DescriptionStart up on a couple of large edges, taking care not to fall (because you'll land on a Barrel Cactus). The climb is fairly straightforward on edges until up near the bulge, when you might be momentarily perplexed because the edges disappear. Find a couple of pockets and soldier on through (avoid the looser rock to the right).
Head up into the bulge; the higher you get the better the holds. Naked limestone gives way to chert knobs and edges.
LocationLeft-most of 3 bolted lines which are all located to the left of a rounded, vertical trough with a curving, overhanging feature part way up the trough. There is a light-colored, oblong area about twenty feet up in the middle of the three routes.
The first bolt is directly above a medium-sized Barrel Cactus.
