Susan enjoying some stay-in-place rock


Route B: Best route on the crag on surprisingly good rock. Take the best portion of rock up the middle of the face. 6 bolts to Mussy Hooks.


Find the best rock on the face and you are on the route.

Susan's Note: The route starts in a finger crack covering a varnished shield; route trends up and slightly left to anchor. Ignore mystery closed-shut anchors on the middle top....they are for no particular reason or route we could identify.

Best route of the crag, hands down. ALMOST making it worth walking over to just to do if you're over at Hillbilly Pillar anyways. Fun climbing, nicely placed bolts. No doubt would get plenty of mileage if it weren't for it's neighbors.
