Description 

Steep friction and thoughtful balance moves along a rounded arete are the nature of this route, with the crux coming somewhat between the two bolts. Well-protected and featuring a bolted anchor (unless it has been chopped), this could certainly be considered a sport climb.

The fun movement, good positioning above the desert floor and distinct lack of crowds (they'll be over at Echo Rock) make this a short but fun diversion. One star out of five.

Location 

High atop the Mounds formation, on a blocky section dubbed the Porno Block, is where you'll find this short, southwest-facing route. Approach via slabs from the right (southeast) to reach a spacious ledge system at the base. This is the right of two bolted routes.

Protection 

2 bolts (5/16"), bolted anchor/rap (3/8")
