Description 

The "horses ass" of the Anteater formation, the east side climbing offers a selection of hits and misses. A few good routes, a few bad, and a few ugly...

By no means a destination, the east side of Anteater still should not be ignored. A great escape on crowded days, you'll find primarily traditional routes and very few fixed anchors. A lot of routes here are run-out and poorly protected, pick and choose wisely, the quality lines will be apparent.

Descend: Walk-off the crag's center routes to the far left side and rappel via Fly Boy's anchors.

Getting There 

From Parking Lot Rock, follow signs leading down past Morning Glory Spire and into the brush. Pass the west side of Anteater (Scream Cheese) and walk around to the back side.

Featured Route For Anteater - East
Just below the crux bulge...

Flyboy 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  ID : City of Rocks : ... : Anteater - East
This is a great route for morning sun or to avoid the wind. To start the route, scramble up to the upper ledge from the right side. You will see a tree at the beginning of the start of the climb. Follow a handful of bolts and pins up moderate 5.10 face to the crux bulge at the last bolt. It is probably better to rap the route, since the anchor are set back from the top. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in ID
