Saddle Burr starts on the jugs at chest height tow...

Avoid private land on approach to public areas MORE INFO >>>


Climb obvious face, steep but juggy. Topout is pretty tall and not quite as easy as the rest of the climbing.


At the top of the main trail in (where it either continues down left to the Standard American Boulder or forks right) follow the trail right until you hit the old fire ring. Look up and to your left and you should see the Saddle Sore overhanging, juggy face.


either bring confidence or a few pads and spotters.

I think I did the FA of this in early '90. It's "Saddle Burr" not "Sore".
