Description 

Locate the nice handcrack in the left-facing corner across from Round Up. Climb this until it widens into a squeeze chimney with huecos on the wall to help you through.


Location 

Find 'Round Up,' the very nice 5.11- crack. Saddle Sores is the left-facing corner opposite Round Up. Both of these routes are around the corner (climber's left) and up a short boulder scramble from Hot Toddy/Tequila Sunrise.


Protection 

Camalots: 2x #2, 2x #3, and a couple of wide cams for the top. There are fixed anchors at the top. From what I remember, they were drilled angles that were pretty solid when we were there ('08). Bring webbing and rap rings, however, as there is a good chance you'll find some tat.
