All climbing is on private land MORE INFO >>>


A very homogenous route with bolt protection right where you want it. Sticky limestone!


This is "behind the trees" on the East Facing Wall on very good and solid rock. 4 routes exist here in the 5.9-5.10a range and this is the most right situtated when facing the wall. Ascend the scree slope for two minutes to the first switch back and you are there.

Much of the rock on this route is suspect with little protection for the belayer. This "mid -pitch choss" is also referred to in the West Desert guidebook.

The "mid-pitch choss" is a death flake, that requires delicate climbing on and around. This route makes you fear for the life of your belayer and should be fixed with some serious trundling.
