In critical habitat area for the Desert Tortoise


Fun, easy climbing up a large featured runnel.


This route is located between Wet My Whistle and The Awakening. There are 3 unknown routes kind of squeezed in here, this is the right one. They are all about the same grade.


7 Bolts. 2 bolt anchor.

We saw three routes between "Wet My Whistle" and "The Awakening" as of April 2011. We had a bunch of people get on these. I felt like this one was a pretty good 5.6. My wife thought 5.7. The one to the left we agree was about. We didn't get on the one to the far left (just right of "Wet My Whistle".

This is a great beginner route. Put someone on here that needs to learn to lead. Plenty of feet, and a slight bulge at the top make the last sequence kind of fun.

Pretty fun route. 5.7 maybe, felt similar in difficulty to the route directly left. really sharp limestone, had to extend some of the draws. I felt better rapping instead of lowering off anchors.

I'm a little confused about the routes in this spot. I believe I climbed The Awakening and then this one (immediately to the left) and I thought it was a lot funner, and a little more difficult.
