A beautiful wind-sculpted, boiler plated vertical face. Start a bit left on the obvious weakness and work up and right 25' to the first bolt. Continue up stellar rock passing more bolts on the way to the summit. There are a couple of different lines to climb past the first several bolts.

There also is a new direct start that climbs past a couple of newer bolts and is mid to upper 5.11. It might be wise to stick clip the first bolt on this variation. F.A. TNA Yahne


The easiest approach is from the old road on the west side of the Shipyard. Scramble up the corridor between Hornet's Nest & Shipyard. Nutra-Sweet is located on the NW face of the Shipyard, about 60' up on the right side of the corridor. Less than five minutes from the car.


5 or 6 Bolts, Medium Stopper or Small Tri-Cam.
7 or 8 Bolts with the Direct Start, Medium Stopper or Small Tri-Cam.
Bolted anchors.

The direct start is really fun and kind of bouldery, definitely nice to have a stick clip for the first bolt. Don't shy away from this route if you have nothing more than a set of draws, can be done with out gear.
