BETA PHOTO: the horse skeleton by the route


This is a fun route spotted and bolted by Josh. There are two starts to this route. You can start to the left and run up t0 the 2nd bolt(you can lean over and clip the first if you want, but its reachy and easier to just clip the 2nd). doing this keeps the route at 10a. The other option is to start directly over the first bolt under the roof. Start out on the big pocket above the roof. this makes this route substantially more difficult and puts the route in the upper 10 range. While this way is very fun, it is also brutal on your hands and can leave your hands bloody. The rest of this route is fun as you climb to the top to a surprise cruxxy finish reaching for the top. please don't cheat around the arete to avoid this move. the rock quality is very poor and you have a chance to knock rocks on your belayer and people below.


this route is in between Tree-beards beard and premature gratification. at the base of the climb there appears(amongst the other wonderful gifts of trash from our friendly local rednecks) to be the remains of a skeleton from a horse.(yes i just wrote that).


4 bolts to two anchors up top. Bring a sling to extend the anchors. this route can be top ropped.
