Sasha, awash in a sea of limestone.


One of the best near vert lines around. Fun climbing through the first half leads to increasing difficulties. A tricky technical crux at 2/3 height leads to more thin climbing to the anchors. Stellar rock.


Located in the center of the wall. Starts with a bit of a seam just left of Wyoming Flower Child. A variation (R El Shinto) exits at the 4th bolt to WFChild.


10+? bolts to anchors.

Pretty darn sustained with a definite crux. 12 bolts + 2 for anchors.
