pulling through the crux


start to the left of Gorgasaurus on the left trending hand crack. follow up to a small ledge to gain a good rest. start into the next left trending hand crack to pull the crux (mental) move (a small mantle) to a decent stance. work your way over into the next larger crack on a small traverse to gain a nice crack to the top. Great boulder on top for a bomber anchor set up. down climb to get off through a small cave to the left of the anchor or find the rap bolts on top somewhere


back side of Dinosaur rock, shade all day to the left of gorgasaurus' indirect start. Just in front of the nice tree. three left trending cracks


standard rack

I can't imagine we did the FA on this, however I can't find the route in either guide book new or old and no mention of it on mountain project or anywhere else. I found it to be a really enjoyable route to climb thus I thought I'd add it to the list on here. If anyone has any beta on the line please let me know and I'll change the information as necessary. Thanks! - Jaimie

My notes show I solo'd it in February 2008 and called it 5.7. I have no doubt it was climbed long before that and many times. The Bartlett book doesn't list it either but maybe C. Miller knows.
