Movin' up.

Description 

This is a great route on very soft but highly featured sandstone - it is the sandstone version of tufa climbing. The cruxes are at the first bolt and another is at the fun mantle midway.

Location 

It is located 20 feet right of I Need a Shower.

Protection 

Bolts and a fixed stopper at the roof- eleven clips. Fixed biners at anchor.

Fun route but lots of still soft rock in the middle. Should clean up nicely with use. Fixed nut in crack is gone, but you could place a small piece or just skip it and not worry.

9 pictures for 70 feet of climbing? That's more beta than you get for most boulder problems. If it wasn't for the fetching model in this beta/topo, I'd cry foul.

Word. She was fetching the quickdraws. OOps, I didn't realize they had people patrolling this site for fowls.

YDPL8S proves that you can't post ANYTHING on mountainproject without some dude from Cali (or Boulder) flaming you for no reason. Cool, bro!!!!

Hey Choss, in my mind it wasn't a flame, I thoroughly enjoyed the pics. Now if they were of me, I would call foul. BTW I am from Cali now, but I cut my climbing teeth in good ole Gunnison, Co.
