Maura Hahnenberger climbing hoodoos in the San Raf...


Sid and Charley is one of the coolest hoodoos in the desert. The route climbs the weird chimney between the summits, moves right along a sloping sandy ledge, and then up a weird wide crack to the summit.

The route goes all free at hard weird 5.10. You can also aid it at a much easier grade - probably down to 5.8 C0 or so.


From the Moore Cutoff Road, go north where two fairly major for the area dirt roads almost intersect. Turn left after a few sandy miles.


A light rack of cams and a bunch of quickdraws.

Great route, bolts in good condition, tons of bird poop. Excellent camp spot. The first clip is an old piton that isnt hammered in all the way, very suspect, bring a stick clip.

Awesome route. I got a 1.25" piece in right before the janky drilled pin. Made the moves around the pin and first bolt a little less scary. Lots of rope drag even with slings on all the bolts. Replaced the webbing on top on 11/13/16.
