Long way to the first bolt


Look for the single bolt in the slab to the right of Three Amigos. Typical slab climbing on small features brings you to a few good stances where you can place smaller gear below the bolt. Continue past the bolt and straight up for the block and tree behind it. Lots of options at the top for building an anchor including the tree. Easy walk down since you're right next to the trail.


At the north end of the crag just after the walk down and 15' right of Three Amigos.


Bring smaller cams for a few placements below the bolt. Some of the features may look tempting but probably wouldn't hold a fall. You can also bail left to get a piece or two in the large flake on climber's left.

Two bolt anchor with rings.

Definitely trickier movement than Raising Arizona (5.7), but much shorter. Pretty sparse on gear and a long run-out at the top after the bolt. Probably not the best for a new trad leader
