Description 

Pet Semetary is the right hand bolted line in the middle of The Sports Wall in greyish colored rock. Head up the corner system right of the yellow wall that hosts Balkan Dirt Diving for the first clip a - ways off the ground. It is possible to fish in some very small gear, wires are best, before the clip. Take a breath, and shove on for some fun 5.10 climbing up to the small roof at 50 ft. A brief 5.11 section at the roof and a couple of more clips will get you to the anchor. Two stars for the fine stone, fun moves, and nice continuity in the climbing.


Protection 

QD only was the original way; it is possible to get in a small camming unit or small wires in the corner system prior to the first bolt. The route is 75 ft long and needs 7 - 8 draws after the start.

Someone chopped the bolt getting on top of the block. Good mid-sized nut in the corner, however. Easy moves, but still, WTF! -dmm

There is only one bolt after the roof; a TCU is gneiss to have when you get pumped....-dmm

Surprisingly good route- much better and harder than it looks. The moves are nicely sustained throughout. Very trad-like climbing. A hidden finger lock takes the sting out of the roof- but it is easy to grope on the jugs and fall off before you find it.

Starts with an awkward Eldo-like dihedral with a Table Mesa roof at the crux. Interesting combination.

Just a warning, but the bolts on this route look a little suspect. Inspect for yourselves.
