Jesse Hill almost to the anchors on Dirty Martini.


Climb loose rock up through a small sandy roof and gain the dihedral. Continue to a bolted anchor, mostly with off fingers and tight hands.

This climb might have been done before the plaque and anchor were installed, there was a fixed hex up there for a long while.


This is between Short Cupped Hands and Flapper. Climb a shallow, left-facing corner just left of a block. Also, it has a plaque.


Single set fingers through wide hands with extra tight hands and off finger sizes.

If you use the tower behind you for the obvious stems and bridges, the climbing is more graceful and not too hard. I'd give it a better quality rating if the bottom were not such soft rock, but it is what it is.

Be sure to tag the summit of the mini-tower by chimneying all the way up. Great "toprope heroes" moment.
