Featured Route For Left (South) Wall

Small Arms 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  Nevada : La Madre Range : ... : Left (South) Wall
This route is a fun warmup and has some good movement in it. There is a small runout between the third and fourth bolts, but the climbing is on easy, albeit questionable rock. Overall, worth doing. It shares anchors with High Caliber, so it makes for a good way to hang draws on that route....[more]   Browse More Classics in Nevada

The route on the little wall in the back is called by one of two names: #1 - "Fuck yeah there's a route over there" if you're looking at the crag from the approach. #2 - "Fuck yeah there's a route over here" if you're at the route and looking out. It can also be known as "Poser flesh tastes like chicken". It's 5.11-

RE: The route on the back wall. I did it years ago and it did seem to have a couple of super hard moves....particularly for 5.9.

Left a little Casio wrist watch here a few weeks ago. I live in the area so I went back to look for it. The watch was gone but someone had put up a TR for a few days. If any one has found this the watch, I would very much love to have it back. Thanks!
