Sierra Wild in her element... leading left book!


Low angle grainy slab leads to two bolt anchor. Same anchors as Easy Rider, Unknown, & Are you small.


A large block separates the Elvis Wall from the rest of Squarenail. This is the left side of the block.


Easy solo. Two bolt anchor

This should really not have any bolts near it as it has a very nice crack but with the bolts it makes for a great opportunity for new leaders to practice placing some gear while having the safety of quickdraws.

Even with just the bolts, it is helpful to place a medium piece of gear in the flake below the first bolt)

Protection in the rest of the book would be small cams.

I thought this was a short but super fun climb! I wish it was longer!
