Bryan Karban working the slopper crux.


This short but stellar rig tackles the center of the "booty wall", equipped by Jeff Engel, Tyler Hoffart and their wonderful group of volunteers for the 2013 Save Sandstone Festival. Start on crimper sequences to the second bolt and move to the amazing, obvious arched slopper. Get tricky with your feet and figure out how not to peel off. The crux is short lived - easier yet engaging climbing will bring you to the chains.


If looking up at the Relationships Wall, this climb will appear about 50 yards to your right and starts in the center of "the pit". Currently it is the first bolted climb right of the bolted arete.

Special thanks to all those who made these new great lines at Sandstone possible! Fun additions to the MN climbing scene. As for the grade, I'm a bit unsure, so others should jump on it and offer their thoughts!

Such a sweet route, great crimpy slabby climbing into a brief and brutal unique crux, then perfect edges to the top! Will be returning to send soon!
