"Andrew" the climber formerly known as AJ powering...
About 100' left of Tiers for Fears is this fabulous corner system with twin cracks. Lieback/jam and stem your way up the corner using both cracks to a bolted anchor at a stance.
Perhaps the best gear lead on the rock, this fun climb has great moves on good rock in a quiet, remote-feeling setting. Were the climb longer perhaps it would deserve more stars. Three out of five stars.
Pro to 2" (with emphasis on thin stuff), bolted anchor/rap

Bolted anchor indicated in the guide and here is GONE. Belay up top with gear and descend via the standard gully scramble down the middle of Fraggle Rock

Thanks Rich, Was thinking of getting out there soon, and your info. helps, to make me go and camp out ontop of BigMo for 1 yr. and see what happens, just kidding... I dont get into that cr*p... There is always a way down but there is always an easier and safer way too, thats what gets me, what are two bolts but two bolts, whats safer two bolts or gear? Sorry for the rant!
