BETA PHOTO: Nasty flaring crack. Can belay where dead tree is,...


Near the left-hand end of the left side of the Corral Wall, just right of the climb Honkey Justice (identified by bolts) are two left-leaning cracks. The right-most of these is a 5.6 called Ranch Hand. This left-leaning, left-facing crack climbs up mostly decent pro and rock to a termination on a good ledge.

Walk down and to climber's right to the anchors above Six-Gun By My Side and Only Outlaws Have Guns to rap back to the base.


A standard rack with a few bigger cams.

You can also walk left to anchor/rap off of Honky Justice. This is a fine route that protects easily.

Wide crack with lots of loose flakes. I found it more like 5.7.
