A nice route, especially for aspiring slab leaders. (Yes, there are such people...) Technical crux is well protected (between bolts 3-5). The "mental" crux begins mid-route at the odd and tricky right-angling seam (sandy in spots). A couple widely-spaced drilled pitons protect this section. Follow seam to top.Occasional rests....to reflect and question yourself, of course. ...[more] Browse More Classics in UT

Very little traffic out here. Spent two days in August out here and saw no one. Have to start at sunrise as the rock is shaded till about 10:00am. Science Friction has shade at the anchor till 11:30am.

There is a new route left of Walking On Sunshine (5.10d). The name Tony Calderon is etched in the anchor. Does anyone know Tony? I'm curious what his route is rated (I'm poor with ratings, but would guess 5.10b-5.11), as well as it's name. It's a great little climb! I believe we may have been the second, or third party to ascend? Thanks for any feedback.
