Sweet steep arete...lead, TR (easy scramble to anchors) or boulder.

Landing is flat, but it's tall if you go sans rope.


Walk through the "most obvious" sandy corridor closest to the parking lot. Obvious arete on left side...


A few pieces in the .75-2.5 range.

Top has a tree, you'll want some looooong runners though.

Sack up and boulder it out, you're over sand!

agreed, this is a boulder problem. Check out "Stone Crusade" for a good pic of the Verm on the clit sans rope

Crux is right off the ground, no reason not to boulder it unless you are really short (little reachy between giant horizontals).

It was tough getting from the first jug to the second. Had to actually jump for it. Would hate to slip near the top bouldering. If you miss the last hold it's a pretty good drop to the sand or a crash pad.
