A high-quality 5.8 sport climb! Lots of fun with several nice moves, including a cool opening sequence. Like many of these climbs, a little sandy at the top.


This route is 1 route right of Knuckle Bones and is easy to identify - lots of chalk!


3 bolts to anchors

It's a fun 5.8. It contains some slopers and pinches.

This is really fun, even though it is sandy and slopey in places. It is well bolted, and a good beginner lead, except the moves to the chains, which are a little committing. Beta, after watching my kids climb it is to stay to the right, use the crack at the top as a sort of lay-back and reach high with your right hand.

Free solo'ed this route when I was young, dumb, and a much stronger and more confident climber.
