Fragile Sandstone: Don't Climb Wet Rock Details

Description

Earth stand-starts on the obvious holds at chest level. Climb through series of good holds and pockets and into the initial crux. At the midway ledge rest it up and prep yourself for the committing, no going back, second half. True crux is above the Midway Ledge.

Location

Earth climbs the large and intimidating face downstream of the Trailer Park just before The "Pictograph" Cave

Protection

Pads will protect the first half to the midway ledge, a fall from above is not recommended.

I dont think that you are describing this particular climb. Landing is flat and far away from the river bed, it also does not climb from a alcove. I also removed some choss and bloc that would not survived an earlier accent, it would have been a scary adventure prior to cleaning... Oct 27, 2012

Just a quick historical comment. Pretty sure I did this problem many, many years ago if it is the one with softball sized river rocks in the landing zone and an undercut alcove at the bottom...? Oct 22, 2012
