Something to do if you have exhausted all of the climbs in this area and want a new route. Combines some of the best elements of the 3 routes on the nice overhanging face. Start on Bonehead and clip the first 2 bolts before climbing right to the 3rd bolt on Wishbone and continue rightward finishing on the last 2 bolts of Crazy Bone.


5 bolts to rings. Rope drag is not that bad but cleaning can be rough. I suggest cleaning the final 3 bolts then lower and climb/clean Bonehead.

I was able to clean all the draws except the first draw while being lowered. When you get to the third draw, unclip the second draw before unclipping the third. Swing out, lower and you can walk up and grab the first draw.

It will help reduce drag if you extend your second and fourth draws a little.

Fun climb.
