The Desert Alpinist.


From the highest dirt ramp up the cliff in the center of the wall, climb a plumb line to the summit. The whole cliff is a choose-your-own-adventure of easy climbing. There are lots of ledges across the wall with lots of loose rock perched on them, just like the quarter fall slot machines.

Descent: Hike the ridge line northeast.


At the top left end of the dirt/scree ramp at the center of the wall.


Single rack of cams up to #3 and a set of stoppers.
