BETA PHOTO: Open Season is the route shown in white. The yello...


Reach up to a left leaning finger crack, place a cam, and lieback a burly move (crux) to a decent ledge. Find gear here, and move up and right on face moves to the first bolt. Sustained 5.9 face climbing follows the open book above, passing a 2nd bolt, then moving into cracks that progressively widen to small hands size as the difficuly eases. Watch for loose pebbles just below the topout.

Another quality Dead Cholla crack, maybe just a little bit harder than Jam Time.


This climb is in the shallow dihedral/crack system just to the right of Lava Flows (which follows the first obvious bolted arete).


2 bolts + gear (1 set nuts, cams to 1.5"). This climb has anchors to the right of the topout that are hard to reach when leading up to them; alternatively, one can reach left to the Lava Flows anchor.
