Northern Dinosaur Egg Rock Climbing
John Saccardi follows the chimney section on 'Reha...
Yet another intriguing rock/large boulder in the complex Dinosaur Mountain area just NNW of Southern Dinosaur Egg. Here lies at least 2 decent routes: Cloud Walker, bolted 10c, and Rehatch, trad 5. To descend, rappel from the top from a bolt/pin anchor. Then down climb a short way to the ground.
Approach from NCAR either from Bear Creek and head up the gully E of Southern Dinosaur Egg (and short of Stonehenge/Thought Control 9) to the base. This is the rock just NNW of Southern Dinosaur Egg and SSE of Der Freischutz. Or approach via the Mallory Cave Trail just past Der Zerkle and down a gully towards Bear Creek and past Der Freischutz.
