BETA PHOTO: Location of Dissonance.

In critical habitat area for the Desert Tortoise


Start on a slabby face around the corner (see beta photo) and make the first couple of tricky moves to the first bolt. Continue on easier terrain up a narrow rib (some exciting exposure) to a steeper face with good holds. Finish on a nice ledge.

The Todd Goss guidebook lists it as 5.8. I found the first move probably 5.7, the rest of climb was not much harder. The easy middle section on exposed and narrow rib is exciting and adds a nice character to the route.


On the right side of Black & Tan, see beta photo.


Six bolts to two bolt anchor. The first bolt may be pre-clipped by stepping up some blocky terrain on the right side of the start. This is recommended as the first moves is the crux of route.
