Sultans of Swing--early 1980s?

Placement of bolts/fixed anchors is prohibited in Wilderness Study Areas MORE INFO >>>


A great single pitch test piece by Mark Motes. Climb the obvious shallow corner and pass the roof on the left.


The route is about twenty yards left of Dire Straits. Walk off west.


Standard trad rack with emphasis on smaller pieces.
