Mike leading Coyote Ugly

Very exciting, full-pitch climbing with a great view.

Loose rock down low yields to even worse rock along the crack followed by much better rock up high.


Start just right of the point directly beneath the intersection of the two cracks which form the X.

Descend by rappelling with two ropes or by down-climbing an easy class four ramp on the back side.


6 bolts (all 3/8" x 3-3/4" wedge bolts). Gear: medium to 3".

Bolted anchor on top.
