Access Issue: PARKING ALONG HIGHWAY 19 Details


Hard climbing through the first 2 bolts (with plenty of bad hold options) to a big jug at the second bolt. Easier climbing to the last bolt and then a traverse right from the last bolt before heading up to the anchors. There is the potential for an awkward fall from the farthest point right on the traverse.


Of the three routes under the large roof on right side of First Buttress, second route from the right.


5 bolts, 2-bolt anchor shared with Sausage. Recommend stick-clipping the 2nd bolt.

[Hide Comment] Despite only being a 2 star route, this thing is a fun little boulder on a rope. Heroic with good stone. Reminds me of Heresy at Smith Rock. Would recommend. Oct 26, 2021
