Sierra gets back into climbing.

Access Fund still owns Golden Cliffs property; soon to be transferred to Jefferson County MORE INFO >>>


This is a cop-out route when you try to lead the face to the right and cluck leftward. It is on the lean side of a star, but hey, some folks say there aren't too many chimneys to play on around these parts, so I reckon here's one.

You can get a #2 Camalot near the ground. Chimney above the 3rd class gully. Find small gear like a medium wire, #0 TCU, small Aliens, and wriggle upward. You can TR the face to the right off your anchor for this.


This is really stemming above the 3rd class gully.


A small rack to a #2 Camalot. The anchor can be a red Alien & green Alien with an optional #4 Camalot.

This is a fun little climb. It is 5.6 at the most. It might be easier.
