Access Issue: Sign Waiver @ trail head. Details

Description

Follows the dihedral to the left of El Machete. Great dihedral footwork and underclings to the headwall. Get onto the head wall and prepare to make a blood sacrifice in the reachy two finger pocket. Continue on cryptic pockets to the chains. Probably the best 5.10 at the wall and just a hair away from 5.11.

Location

Center of The Sanctuary. Obvious dihedral with crescent shaped crack 20 ft up with a tall tree growing right by the base.

Protection

4 bolts, anchor with chains

[Hide Comment] This route is excellent, slab start, awesome dihedral moves up to a strong undercling, the top over to a small pocket and crux clip the anchors! Dec 8, 2014

[Hide Comment] Very bouldery start that reaches to an under cling. Didn't sacrifice blood but definitely did tear up my fingers in the last few moves with the two finger holds. Dec 23, 2015
