  • Description 

    This is a reorganizational entry to allow for L->R: sorting of the routes to make sense, we'll create an entry for the east face.

    This face has relatively few routes, and most are on the far south end of this face.

    The sun on this face is relatively quick to disappear in the late morning.

    Climbing on top of the Kissing Camels is not allowed.

    Getting There 

    Park at the North Main Parking Lot and walk up a designated trail to the desired route.

    I've always looked at this climb as a potential free climb, but from the ground it appeared the anchor would consist of one drilled pin. Then I noticed on 10/3/08 that someone added a new 2-bolt anchor (3/8" bolts, I think - not the huge beefy ones), and I had to finally climb it.The route climbs two shallow, right-facing corners to the top of a pillar, linked by an easy face move protected with a drilled pin.
