|Closed: Private Property - Sphinx Rock is on private property MORE INFO >>>|
This route is located on the left side of the slabs below Sphinx Crack. It is the leftmost slab route. Although the top is just a solo up 5.5 terrain the crux areas down low are great fun and reasonably protected (as long as the 1/4" bolt survives the short fall you would exert). If the bottom slab continued I would consider this a great route.
Crimp up small edges on perfect slab up to the flake, place a small cam and hop up. Clip the bolt, and slab out right and up on knobs and a few edges. Once you are on the lower angled rock, the hard climbing is over. Angle up and left toward two bolts above a ledge. I don't remember placing another piece until just before the top. You could groundfall from the upper section.
One old bolt and a small cam in the flake/ramp. Another medium piece near the top. I think that was it!
