This is the line of bolts just right of the Left Dinosaur Crack. Crux is low on good rock and difficulty depends on whether you use the boulder right behind you as a feature. The climbing soon eases and the semi loose but featured face above is fun climbing at about 5.7.


This route is the bolted line that is immediately right of the Left Dinosaur Crack. It starts down in the pit with a back scraping boulder right behind you. Mussy Hooks at the top.


Lots of bolts (9) but you might need a couple of cams between a few bolts. Two or three total cams in the .75 to 3" range will get it done. Mussy hooks at the top.

Pretty good if you are there and need to climb something better than the Left Dinosaur Crack. Since there is a huge and useable boulder right behind you, the start is pretty contrived, but whaddya gonna do?

After a couple of pre-Spring cocktails, I've decided I don't really like routes put in as "unknown" or "un-named" or whatever. If you have the real name, I'll gladly put it in, just contact me or my heirs and we'll get your glory out here for all to see. Until then... I'm just flat giving these things some names.
