Head up on steep ground on good pockets past the first two bolts. Clip the second bolt and pull the crux moves on small sharp pockets, and a tricky clip at the third bolt. From here the angles lessens and head up on easier ground to the anchors.

  • 4 bolts and anchors with single biners to twist your ropes
  • Try not to fall early as you could land in the large yucca at teh base of the climb
  • Bring your Dust-buster to clean the sand out of the pockets and you Dremel tool so you don't loose your fingers in the two finger pockets.

Definitely dusty but the pockets are good as I remember. Better than Blessed and Blissed at Pogues, for a route of similar grade and angle.
