Nifty Nine.


Climb a left-facing corner. There are a few large rocks inside the crack that are loose. Be aware when placing gear.


100' right of Jawbone.


mid-sized gear up to #3. Use bolts above Special Olympics or rap off tree. There is also some webbing w/rings high up on the tree.

if you're planning on doing this one, do us all a favor a bring a crowbar to get the loose block out. i pulled on it without realizing it was loose and almost pulled it out on me (and my belayer)

would be a nice two-star route if not for the ostensible death block up there. bolted anchors closer than the beta photo suggests.
