Anteater - East Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: sweet jams under the roof
The "horses ass" of the Anteater
formation, the east side climbing offers a selection of hits and misses. A few good routes, a few bad, and a few ugly...
By no means a destination, the east side of Anteater
still should not be ignored. A great escape on crowded days, you'll find primarily traditional routes and very few fixed anchors. A lot of routes here are run-out and poorly protected, pick and choose wisely, the quality lines will be apparent.
Descend: Walk-off the crag's center routes to the far left side and rappel via Fly Boy's
From Parking Lot Rock, follow signs leading down past Morning Glory Spire and into the brush. Pass the west side of Anteater (Scream Cheese) and walk around to the back side.
