Description 

The 3 sport climbs here are seldom visited. They are quality though so check them out. This area is sunny so it is best to avoid it in the summer. Lots of bouldering around here too. There are also 2 more roped climbs south of Tool Buttress. You basically will have to follow the bluff line and look for the anchors on these if you want to find them (5.7 and 5.9).

From the Fixed Pin guide book:A brilliant pitch that's just slightly easier than "Don't be a Tool". Climb through a series of big holds and small ledges to the bulging crux. Engineer a successful sequence and ride over sustained ground to the ledge. Take a much need break and then hop back on board for one more challenging move at the roof....[more]   Browse More Classics in AR

Tool and Poo Choo are two of the best routes at the ranch! These seem to get overlooked for some reason, get on 'em!
