Description 

Sandworm Rock is a small and grainy formation just south of the Anasazi wall. East of Snickers, and past the southeast end of the Little Hunk.

Getting There 

Most straightforward way is to approach towards the Little Hunk, and hook right into the corridor between the Little Hunk and Snickers. Walk through the corridor. At the end of the hunk, the Anasazi wall and Sandworm Rock will be visible to the southeast (looker's leftish).

There is a more direct way walking past Life's A Bitch but finding the wall is less obvious.

Climbing Season

For the Echo Rock Area area.

This is a 4 bolt route on the right side of Sandworm Rock. Clip a low first bolt to protect the move up into the bowl. Then head up and trend right across a groove to a cool dike that splits the face shooting up and left.There was evidence of a poorly chopped two bolt anchor at the top of the route.This route also suffers from the heinous gravel showers the belayer gets as you climb. Fun moves on highly suspect rock....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
