This crag is really a part of the Crazy Horse Buttress, but due to it's different aspect and additional approach, it is well suited to list it separately. The North side will get earlier sun from the east in the Fall and Winter months than most of Crazy Horse, then go into the shade in afternoon, and the Inner Routes will stay shady through most of the day with the exception of 'Sandbag' which rests with its bottom half in the afternoon sun in that season. The seven pitches here are all French grade 6 (though you can guess which one is sandbagged), which is to say between 10b and 11d.

Getting There 

Approach as for Crazy Horse, but climb up the rebar ladder into the huge archway/cave and arrive at the base of the left-most route, Sandbag (11d).

Climbing Season

For the Crazy Horse General Area area.

There is a tree stump at half height which gives the climb it's name. A slightly runout start leads to some quality climbing. A pumpy finish guards the chains and the top and requires saving some mumbo for. Don't forget to pack the guns. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
