Access Issue: Access: Details
For the moment, access to this area by climbers should be from a temporary trailhead/parking area that is located near the old Morrell's Wall Parking Lot area. From there, the new Tom's Thumb Trail leads up toward Morrells Wall, Gardeners Wall and on to Tom's Thumb. Please look for, and use designated climber access trails.
The variation shares the first two bolts with Sinbad, but instead continues up and right through various crimps and edges to a small roof. The next moves require a mantle step up through three more bolts of precision edging and opposing holds. There is a slight run out between the second to third bolt of the crux. When your reach the last of the three crux bolts, the route eases off dramatically in difficulty. From here, you go left on a large flake joining up with the last two bolts of the original Sinbad. The large flake is also an optional gear belay with 4" gear, We broke the pitches up to enjoy the view , with creative runner usage it could be linked safely through a 70m rope. The Rappel is a double rope rap off great anchors with chains.
The start of the ramp of Sinbad, is to the right of the dihedral crack route called Two. First bolt is visible from the deck at approximately 15 feet. From the beat feet area you scramble up and through a short chimney, there will be another route above with a bolt (Jungle Gym), walk right and you will see the crack dihedral.
A handful of small cams from double zero through yellow C3, and small set of nuts supplement the bolts quite well. We used a number one big bro and blue c4 for the belay; ideally a number four C4 and big bro would be a better combination. The bolts are of older stock, but most of the them are new SMC hangers.
