Stem your way to the first bolt. Some may want a cam to protect this, but most will be comfortable as it's less than 5.9 to this bolt. Intriguing stemming leads up the bleached dihedral above to a 2-bolt anchor.


This climb is the 2nd bolted climb you come to at Dead Cholla. It is a left-facing corner in the alcove area with Jam Time and, and is just right of Bob..It.


3 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. Some may want some small cams to get to the first bolt.

Great climb but the bolting seemed stingy. You would do a hard move to a good foot ledge and expect to be able to clip the next bolt, but you had to do a couple of more hard moves to get to the next bolt. Luckily you can supplement with gear between the bolts.
