BETA PHOTO: Catsup is the crack in the center of the photo. "...

Description 

Just left of "Trip to the Vet" is this line with a shallow right facing corner starting about 15ft. up. Boulder up onto a ledge, and stand in a chimney that squeezes into an offwidth. Utilize the hand crack on the left wall and work your way up a wide hands to hands corner, with a few offwidth pods along the way. Chain anchors after 65ft. as a ledge is reached.


Location 

This route is 10ft. left of "Trip to the Vet" and 10ft. right of the "Unnamed" 5.11+, route 24 in the David Bloom guidebook.


Protection 

.75 camalot of the start, lots of #2 camalots, some #3s, 1 #4, and a #5 camalot is useful, but not necessary as you can plug gear in the handcrack to the left of the offwidth.

seemed easier than 10+... or at least easier than the 10 on either side of it.

started with a big cam but easy to avoid off-width climbing. could also place hands pieces in a side crack to start. Then reach past a pod and from there it is a fun narrowing corner to the chains.

this was a very nice little route, and would make a good early lead for someone new to the desert who wanted to work towards doing tower routes. great find jason!
