Mount Boner seen from Punk Rock. Brian is on Shaki...

Description 

This is a fun sport crag with quality routes from 5.8 to 5.11 on solid granite. The routes here are similar in character to, but longer than, the routes on the neighboring Punk Rock. Try them all, but I particularly enjoy Shaking the Pope's Hand (5.8) and Smack the Smack the Cold Booty (5.11b). All routes (with the possible exception of the 5.10 roof route at the far right of the crag) can be set up with a TR, although access around the back side of Mt. Boner is a bit more involved than for Punk Rock. Just follow your nose and be prepared for a few low fifth class moves.

L->R:

A. Slap and Tickle, 10-, 1p, bolts.
B. Unknown, 5, 1p, gear & bolt.
C. La Femme Delight, 5, 1p, gear.
D. Shake Hands With The Unemployed, 7+, 1p, bolts +/- gear.
E. Dirty No-Gooders, 6, 1p, bolts.
F. Smack the Cold Booty, 11, 1p, bolts & gear.
G. Side Effects, 10 or 11, 1p, bolts.
H. Confession, 11, 1p, 45', bolts.
I. Shaking The Pope's Hand, 7, 1p, 45', bolts.
J. Power House Ministry, 10+, 1p, 45', bolts.


Getting There 

Follow the directions to the Ironclads. Hop out of your car and make the grueling 1 minute approach to Mt. Boner, the obvious crag to the left of Punk Rock. Unlike Punk Rock, you will not be able to belay out of the back of your pickup, but it's pretty close.

Having done every route on both Punk Rock and Mount Boner (yeah, I know, woo-hoo) I have to agree that Smack the Cold Booty and Shaking the Pope's Hand are definitely the best on either rock, and really the only ones possibly worthy of more than 2 stars.

The 5.10 roof problem on the far right side of Mt. Boner should be noted to have loose hangers under the roof and above, probably just need a wrench, so Beware!~

Nice 'n shady. A relief from the heat down below as it didn't have sun on the face until about 1330 on 12 Aug.

Could someone order these routes up L->R or R->L? That would be most helpful!
