Description

This route looks really fun (and easy) from the ground, but ends up packing quite the punch once you get on it. Cruiser climbing leads to the second bolt where the business starts. Make a hard deadpoint to a sloping crimp with your right hand, then get your feet high and dyno to the jugs above. The guidebook says 5.12b/c and that the crux involves pinching a tiny cobble. Well, I didn't find any tiny cobble, and the rating felt upper end 5.12c to me, so maybe something broke since the FA.

Location

This is the route between Sandstoner Reverse and Short and Dorkey. The route is obvious if you are standing at the base of Sandstoner.

In a place largely full of what would be one star climbs at most crags, this one gets 3 stars for the gap. Staying left and traversing over back right above the 2nd bolt seems the most natural, less contrived way versus using the crappy crimp and diagnoling across the direct bolt line which gives it the 12c grade, but this variation likely downgrades it to 11d or so, though the chalk indicates most do it the Easier way.
