If you are desperate or just curious then do this climb, otherwise stay away.

This route wanders through three mini roofs ding strange moves and wandering at times quite far off the bolt line.

Don't waste your time on this one, there are too many other classic lines at this cliff.


1st climb you'll reach at this cliff. (Far left, short wall)


4 bolts to anchors, Who Bolted This??

I am by no means a bolting expert, but I know that some of the bolts of this climb could/should have been placed in better locations!

Proof the rash does exist.

Fell twice at the ridiculously hard crux, paid the price. I've never put myself in such an exposed crimp to mantle before, and never tried so hard not to break my face and grab the two finger pocket/sloper under the draw. If this is a 10a crux then my name is Wilma (I assume others are taking a different line?...grading it 10a-). Wet and muddy route to boot...made it literally impossible to finish without hoisting myself up a draw and then leaping for some slimy slopers. Avoid.

Once you climb all of the climbs at sandstonia and then climb anywhere else in the gorge you will wonder why you ever climbed at sandstonia. :)

If you wander to the left the route is much easier, certainly no more than a 10a. If you follow the bolt line (which I think is a fun challenge) it's considerably harder; 10c? And any water on the route seemes destined to find its way to the side crimp that I needed to assist the mantle.
