In critical habitat area for the Desert Tortoise


The route start off on a low-angle slab with holds in all the right places. Features get slimmer and slimmer and the angle steeper and steeper as the route continues. At the headwall the moves get really interesting and fun. A few tricky moves up to the horizontal cracks gets you through the crux and to the jug-pulling to the anchors.


Just to the right of Czech Frogs Say Qua on the corner between the left and right sides of Kelly's Rock.

I thought this was just as difficult as K-5 (to the left of this around the corner at Kelly's rock), thus I'd rate it a 5.10b. Great route though. The crux for me was right after the slab discontinued.

You can't really see the anchors from below, but they are up there!
