searching out the beta passing the second bolt on ...


sustained awesomeness starting with slab, slopers, jugs and ends with a good bouldery top out. (26 meters, 60 meter rope with stretch is perfect)

this route may be the only route at Paynes Ford that is a proclaimed classic that is under 5.11. this is a must do for any/all level of climber, use it as a warm up or a goal, fantastic!

On the bathroom wall at Hangdog Camp there's a list of those who have climbed Temples of Stone naked... I'm proud to have joined the club ;)

How did I miss that??!?!?

Granted, my sister belaying me would have had a bad time.

As others said, you must do this one naked. Extra points for doing it at night, or with a full moon.
