Not the best climb, but it's a good warm up. T...

Closes at dusk, and most parking areas are self-paid MORE INFO >>>


Start up a series of blocky moves to a high first bolt (easy to get too and keeps you from decking) then it's slopers and pinches to a short crux undercling. Remember the undercling! Delicate footwork lead to a perplexing bulge with hidden moves out left then onto an exposed arete to a short headwall just before the anchors.


The furthest route left on the Wreckage wall. About 15 ft left of Mr Wipples Wild Ride up the blunt arete to the left of the big cave up high.


9 bolts to a two bolt anchor with chains.

This route is pretty rad. The move around the bulge is cool! Just spicy enough for me.

The routefinding on this one is crazy, so many features and only a few of them are any good. Lots of sandiness everywhere too. Great exposure / views from top. Spacing of last few bolts is a little spicy. There was a nesting goose in the cave near the middle when I led it, which was pretty cool.

Very fun route, and very hard to onsight for the grade IMO, for the reasons others have mentioned. Moves near the top are quite fun

Poorly positioned bolts, mud flowing down the whole wall covering most holds, nothing but choss on this route, and not a trace of chalk. Very unpleasant experience. Bring a helmet for the climber AND belayer or better yet get on the 10c a few routes to the right - it's a much better warm up.

Sounds a little like someone got spanked. It's different and requires a diverse skillset, and the bolts are right where you need them, but not where you don't.

As others said the route finding is interesting, botls were decent & safe. I liked it, top was excelent. Not much chalk, some dirt & loose pieces-not bad though.
