Description

One of the few moderate routes at the Guardian. Sahara is the first route you encounter on your left when you reach the crag.

Start up the slabby buttress to the left of Brazen Hussie featuring a wide crack splitting its middle. Start up the crack with hands to fists-sized jams in the back. Transition to some moderate offwidth moves until the crack tapers at the top. Follow the again hands to fists-sized crack to the chains.

Location

First route on your left as you reach the Guardian. Right of the big, overhung, right-facing corner of Wing and a Prayer Project.
