Jason in the midst of the opening moves.


Start sitting with good holds. Make an easy move to a cool pocket hold, then make a tough move over the lip. Head up and left along the arete on some holds that defy logic (some that you swear will break are bulletproof, others that look solid break easily). Top out once you hit the apex of the arete.

Great movement on some of the coolest looking rock around.


Middle Area
Located on the right arete of the obvious overhanging square face seen from the approach trail.


Pads and spotters. Falls off of this problem can be kinda weird, so pay attention and you'll be fine.

This problem vaunts the kind of climbing that reminds me why I rock climb in the first place. Highly recommended.

Starting in the toothy pocket and going right then up and slightly left on the face is a great moderate climb (maybe V1 or so?). Don't know if it's already listed here.

Nope, not listed, not named. Add it in if you so desire.

Ya pretty sure Dan Luna got the FA way back when we first started exploring the area.

The moves from the pocket to the sidepull jug are rad. Definitely do this one
