Description 

Sharon's Sandbag is another 5.9 at the NNP. It seemed pretty reasonable for the grade, although leaders should be comfortable with smaller gear.

Start just left of the skull graffiti. Climb up to a platform below an obvious finger crack.

The finger crack opens in a few places, but generally you'll be crimping your way on small edges on either side. Gear is generally nuts and TCUs, but there are occasional placements for thin-hands-size cams as well.

Near the top, mantle onto a platform 5' below the rim.

Location 

Start just left of the skull graffiti- Sharon's Sandbag is the right of the 3 obvious cracks on this face on the left side of the NNP.

Climb #6 in Wa3lt's beta photo

Protection 

Nuts and cams to 2".
2-bolt anchor, reachable from the top
