The Bottom of Crotalid.


Super fun and varied climbing. Start on the white face and climb up slopers to some good holds past a bulge. Continue straight up the slab onto the grassy ledge. From the grassy ledge pull the overhang (bolt to your left). Follow the line of bolts up the awesome, gently overhanging face to the anchors. Clip the anchors, but you're not done until you're looking over the top!


About 30' right of the previous route. On a white face left of a large left facing corner. The first bolt is the color of the rock and can be tricky to see at first. Very worth looking for.


Sport. 6 bolts to a 2 bolt rap anchor. If your second is going to top rope this route be sure to extend the anchors. Also, be aware that the bolt just under the roof, and the bolt above it are fairly close together; be cautious not to accidentally Z clip!

Great Route! Just make sure it didn't rain the day before if you want to climb it.
I'm a little concerned that the huge crux sidepull on the roof won't be there for long

Glad you liked the route Joe. I don't think it's necessary to do a sidepull at the roof though.
