Eric forgot his rake...didn't know we'd be gardeni...


Nice blocky dihedral to the right of the unknown dihedral. Nice face moves and a short crux section. Interesting and exposed finish.


This is the far right climb. There is a smooth almost featureless wall and Salt Dawg is in the dihedral on the right.


Bolts and some gear to 1" would be much appreciated. 2 bolt chain anchor.

Someone bolted this route but with significant run outs between bolts. If you want to climb it I would bring a rack of nuts and a 0.75, 1 and a 2 camalot. there is also what appears to be a rap anchor or an anchor to make it into a second pitch two thirds of the way up the face. Either way it needs some chain links or quicklinks to make it safe to rap off of.

yeah, that mid point anchor is off route and put up by someone other then the FA party. I think it was an optimistic attempt at a new sport route.
