Fun route, the crux is only 20 feet off the ground but well protected. The crux involves technical sport moves then the rest of the climb is more bouldery. The first move to get off the ground may be difficult for shorter people.


This route is located off of the second and largest pullout on the right after the BLM sign. This pullout has a very large and tall cottonwood tree in the middle of it. Cross the creek (usually dry by mid summer) and continue to the wall, the route is east of the cottonwood in the parking lot. Look for the painted bolts in a short but wide arete about 15 feet up.


The route has 5 bolts and a three bolt anchor at the top in a slot. All bolts are new 5" long, 3/8" dia. stainless with stainless hangers. As of 8/1/2006 the anchor has no chains to equalize.

Does anyone know how good of shape the bolts are in?
