Heather Haynes leads John Cruiser Meloncrimp with ...


To find this route, hike up to the [Mural Wall] and head right. This route should be the last route before the barbed wire. There is a large boulder near the base just right of the route.

This is a fun route. Climb through a flake on good holds until you are confronted with the decision of which method to beat the crux. Any way you do it you will probably have a good time. Another well protected route with good bolt placement.


6 bolts and anchors.

Super fun, and quite sustained. Much harder than Block Party, but just as fun and a way cooler name.

With the crux down low where there are plenty of bolts, steep large holds make this one to come back to. Just plain fun! It will be a cruse if you are solid at the grade - no 'tricks' needed.

Great route, perfect for new leaders to the grade, plenty of good rests and the bolts are easy clips. Mos' def' a must do.
