Nathanael on TR, about to enter the crux.

Road & nearby private property MORE INFO >>>


This is a "sporty" route that tackles the face/arête to the right of the small gully. A single bolt protects the face, and decent gear can be found higher to the left in the gully. One more bolt near the top protects the overhanging crux, after which the steepness keeps increasing. The top is juggy, but pumpy, and some of the rock is dubious...a fall here could have serious consequences.


30 feet to the right of Lator Gator, this route climbs right of the gully. Start far right and traverse left towards the rounded arête. Be careful of the large blocks on a ledge about ~20 feet up and in the gully when climbing and pulling your rope.


2 bolts supplemented with a slim rack and potential to sling chickenheads. 2 bolt anchor with chains.

Not that it really matters as those guys can never remember who did what (ha! I know you're going to read this Glenn and Kevin!), but I was told the name was Spank Me and the FA was Kevin and Steve Cheyney.

Glenn - thanks for adding the anchor on top.

Cool, Glenn mentioned it was he and Kevin but didn't remember giving it a proper name. "Spank Me" it is.

You are right, Jason - us old guys are suffering from CRS syndrome it seems....

To give credit where it is due, Dan & Nathaneal put the anchors in on this one. Thanks a lot, guys!
