Sunburned choss


I wasn't able to find this route on MP, please let me know if it's referenced in guidebooks.

Sit-start on a very nice ledge. Easy down climb with the tree on.


Some of the flakes are chossy, keep it euro and utilize the crack. Double hand match on the ledge, cross to a bomber jug on the crack. Start hiking up. It can get slopey but you'll have very secure feet once you start eurostepping. Very safe top-out with plenty of jugs.


Along the climber access trail to the west of the Blob, you will see this beautiful crack to the right sitting atop some boulders.


Crash pad. Good protection despite it being on some boulders.

Crazy that no one ever found this excellent boulder <5 minutes from the one of the most historied and heavily trafficked climber campgrounds in the country. Also doubt I could have ever climbed it without the detailed move by move beta provided here on Mountain Project.

What the fuck is a euro step?

Also, this route has been climbed before and goes at 5.8, not V1. I don't know the name off the top of my head, but I'm sure it's in the guidebook. And this is in the Outback, not the campground.

I appreciate the sarcasm, part of why I like this place.
