At stacked blocks!

Portions of the approach and cliffs of this area are on private land. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This is basically a boulder problem (V0+, V1 or so) to huge jugs, but it's pretty keen. Power up to the stacked blocks that make up the key handlebar hold. There's still some friable crud under your feet on the overhanging part, so take caution.

Location 

On the left flank of the Bonetown "cave," before the new slab routes. Look for the stumpy remains of what was a prickly, crotch-nibbling bush at the base (a crag gardener has since cut it down.)

Protection 

Bolts (3 or 4, I don't recall)

You can more or less see the sweet stacked block handlebar hold that makes Milkbone (10a) worth climbing. Don't worry... it'll hold :) Old, bad scan of a photo by Hillary Davis.

The stars are for the fun power moves and the handlebar itself.

When I did the route last it was 11a and had 5 bolts and the rings on top.

D'oh. You're right. It was late, and I get the names mixed up anyway. The short 10a is Milk Bone. Yes, the 5-bolt 11a is Wishbone. Fixed it.
