Sky warming up!


See Sandia Rock by Mick Schein (2003, Sharp end Publishing) for a good description.

First pitch is a "Great". Second pitch is just "Okay" - has its share of looseness and lichen for a good stretch (~40 ft?) right off the belay.


Begins between Good Clean Fun on the left and a crack on the right that has an evergreen shrub roughly 40 feet up.


Standard rack including an extra handful of cams in the 3/8 to 3/4 inch range in addition to the usual stoppers.
