A low and thin crux on sharp holds leads to easier climbing above. Good rock and well protected. Staying off the pillar behind you and over your left shoulder will keep it true to the grade.


As you crawl toward the various routes below the Eye, this will be the first one you encounter. Bolts and anchor in full view.


5 bolts to a thin crack that you will not need any pro for. Open shuts at top.

Pretty short but really good down low. The good stuff is over before you know it. 5.10 a/b

Too short but soo sweet. Starts at the flat sandy base just before a 6' tall boulder. Good place to leave you pup if you brought one. The route climbs very well, Bishop Area Rock Climbs lists this route as 10c. Again, over inflation of the grade but not the climbing... add a star drop a few letters. Good stuff.
