BETA PHOTO: Dirty Dancing (slab) and Lion's Den (steep)

Seasonal Raptor Closures MORE INFO >>>

Description 

A tall, clean, blank looking slab of perfect rock. Gingerly, although boldly step from one tiny feature to the next, with all that hip stabilizer slab-action happening, until you reach the big holds at the 12 foot mark. At this point, it turns <5.10: a cruise to the top.

Location 

The largest, cleanest, tallest face on the Unearthed boulders. It's southwest facing, on the larger of the two boulders. It's the center of this face, about 6-10 feet right of Lion's Den.

I ticked this one a few days after buried alive and the initial cleaning, the easy upper bit involved a dish brush and several tries to pull the crux and scrub our way to the top. That was the FA to my knowledge. Its turned into a great climb with a fun lower crux on small features to a high topout through easy terrain. Down climbing the S face is a fun way off.

Friends and I have unofficially (and jokingly) dubbed the problem "dirtier dancing" because the left hand side pull at the start is now in two pieces due to some crumblage. Problem is still doable, but you'll have to settle for a shittier two-three finger crimp to start.
