While climbing this one I commented to my belayer how amazingly steep this one was for only 11a!

Scramble up the easy slab and reach high for the first bolt. From here sequential moves on great holds, set you up for the crux. Continue past on ever steepening ground on jugs, pull out of the steepness and onto the face. Head on the left side of the last bolt up to the anchors.


Starts between Bonehead and Crazy Bone. 2nd really steep route from the left.

Fun line. It is the center most route in the most inverted section of Bone Town.

Great line. Lots of climbing in a very short distance. A bit of a sandbag to say the least at 11a

This is the line that made people believe this wall was strong enough to bolt routes on. We had been walking past it all season as we bolted Karma cave and Rough Rider Wall initially.

This climb packs a lot of fun movement into only ~40 feet. Will feel like a big sandbag at 11a if steep climbing isn't your strong suit.
