Pitch 1


Pitch 1: 5.7 75ft. climb crack in the middle of Slingshot, leading to the left on small column, crack becomes OW, belay in notch 2 good bolts.

Pitch 2: 5.7 75ft. Down climb 5 ft. and traverse sandy ledge all the way through chimney, climb crack to roof then traverse back right to 6-bolt ladder up face. Free move to 2-bolt anchor w/ webbing and rap rings.

Pitch 3: 5.7 20+ ft. Traverse sub-summit right and south along ledge, short moves to top-out. Belay from threaded rock and 1-Fixe bolt. Enjoy view!


Hike uphill from parking lot on main trail for 10-15 min. Upon a wooden sign “Marg’s Draw” continue heading East on a faint trail. Toward the North is “Snoopy and Slingshot Rocks. The trail will guide hikers to the saddle between Snoopy and Slingshot, from there hike up steep loose washed out gully toward East. After you top out on the saddle between Slingshot and the Camel’s head, drop packs and rack up!

The Rappel: short rappel to sub summit. 2-60m, double-rope rappel from here, bring set of chains and quick links to clean up 2nd rappel. (Possibly another section of chain and bolt for 1st Rap)


Mostly medium stoppers, set of TCU’s, BD cams to#1-# 4”, set of etriers, 8-10 shoulder runners w/ biners, 2-60m ropes.
