finishing up on the slab after the crux


From a sandy scoop delicately clip the first bolt before crimping and underclinging pockets. Obtain a short rest by stemming in or near two scoops before a bout of patina pinching. Run it out on easier, low-angle terrain before making a final move to the chains.


Located directly across from the rappel, 'The Sandstoner' is the leftmost of four delicate face routes. These routes are left of 'Has Bro' and ascend the mushroom-like boulders. 'The Sandstoner' is on the West Wall.


~6 bolts to chains.

Awesome technical route, slightly run out over the bulge but much easier climbing.

What's the route just right of this?

great rock, really cool features and sustained movement. This route is a classic in my mind. The route to the right is a 12b called The Dopeman
