Description Suggest change

This is a great climb that is deserving of more traffic. Climbs through the center of the wall just right of pretty purple/pink sandstone halfway up. Work up slopey/sidepull jugs up to a ledge and recover before pulling the gap (mini crux) to get to a hand jam slot that you can clip from. Make some moves on smaller holds to get to the headwall (there is a thin lightning bolt like crack you'll have to make use of). A big throw to a slot just below the roof lets you set up before you search for desperate sloped off holds to clip the high anchors from. So worth it. 

Location Suggest change

This is the center line at Dessert Bar. Walk up a sandy ramp to clip the first bolt. Directly in front of the cedar log. 

Protection Suggest change

8ish bolts and the chains. There is a lodged cam just before the ledge that supplements where a bolt should be; I've pulled on it and it is solid. Although the webbing is fading so take care.
