This is only one of two 5.9s at the Dungeon. Fun climb though. Find the crux getting to the second bolt--may be somewhat height-dependent.


Located on another tower about 30 feet to the right (out the canyon) of Trash Tower.


3 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor

I bolted this one in a rainstorm (which didn't make it any easier to scrub the lichen off) and then climbed it with Walt. I think this was probably the last thing I put the drill to in that canyon...

A bit sequency for 5.9! A little more difficult than its neighbor Garbageboy. A nice route, worth doing.
