Description Suggest change

A simple traverse left off the hillside gets you off the ground fast. Then at the bush on the ledge, head into a finger crack going up broken blocks. When this crack stops in a few meters, traverse right and up around the bushes then back left to the better crack system. A few good options for pro pop up here, but definitely extend them.

**I didn't place my first piece until here, I don't recommend it, but I will say that it makes the lower section X rated, at the benefit of minimal rope drag.**

From here, head up a couple meters with good jams, then traverse right under the block into the bigger, varying crack. You get almost everything from hands to OW in this short but sweet section, and I found solid pro despite the loose sand.

Top out on the ledge, and build your anchor in the wall next to you (I used 0.75 and 0.2 Friends and a small hex).  Belay your second up, and walk off up and to the right, or try to adventure your way back to the wash. The aid route goes up.

Location Suggest change

Head to the aid route, scramble to the right up the hill next to the wall until you hit trees and a boulder, and start the initial traverse here.

Protection Suggest change

Trad gear -  0.1 - #3, mostly between fingers and fist sizes and a do it yourself anchor.
