Description

This fun climb is in a quiet and peaceful valley just NW of Tidbit and south of Bond Boulders.  This hillside crag is not visible from the approach, but visible from Bond Boulders and Beak Boulders as well.  It is a smallish crag with only one route on it.  The route has an easy bucketed start, with a steep cool middle section (obvious crux) , followed by easier climbing and a steeper finish.  Six or seven bolts to a bolted anchor.  Rap or walk off.

Location

From the alternate approach wash to Loveland and Beak Boulders, hike past the old mining homestead area and the small crag with Tidbit, which is up and to the left.    Just before you get to the section you have to scramble and boulder in the wash to continue, you take a wash or weakness to the left (west).   This narrow canyon soon opens up and there are some old deserted mines or mine diggings up and to the right.  The crag is now visible ahead and on the left.  Approach from car is probably about 25 minutes of mostly flat and pleasant hiking.

Protection

Six or seven bolts to a bolted anchor. Quick draws only. Someone left carabiners on the bolts, so you can rap if you wish, or walk off. I would be nice to have some stainless steel quick links or rap rings on the bolts instead of someone's ghetto biners left behind to steal.
