Climbs a sandy crack just left of the parking lot at the top of Park Ave.


This is the left of the 3 free routes, and just right of Tilting at Windmills


Double set of cams would probably do.

I did this climb (and the other 2 as well) in March of 1989 with Big Al Bartlett , Cyndie Bransford, and Eric Johnson. There are 3 free climbs (The others being Another Zinger, and Red Zinger....more of the same...all 5.9 too..), and they are nothing special, especially with Indian Creek splitters just down the road a ways. Still, they are worth doing, don't take too long to do, and you can show off for the tourists who are in the parking lot of Park Ave......maybe you can impress some hottie and get a phone # for beers at McStiffs (no pun intended) later in the evening? Remember;...it's sandstone; not granite;....keep your expectations realistic, and you'll be fine....(IF you see Eric Bjornstad at McStiffs;... buy him a beer...or 2...)

This is the splitter looking crack on the left wall from upper park avenue parking. Mostly .75 camalot, #1 camalot. Beware: the block near the top rocks, pull gently. Kinda sandbagged for the grade, but eh, it's arches. Think light and believe its solid.
