Greg climbing Tumbling Dice, Jan 2005.

Description 

Perhaps half way up to Morrel's Wall from the old parking there is a free standing pinnacle. Route is on the downhill (north) side of the formation. Tricky slab moves bring you to a steeper headwall to the topout. I remember being able to go either right or left to finish, both seemed about the same in difficulty.


Location 

Half way or so from parking to Morrel's Wall. I have tried to follow the new parking regs, but it looks like the Morrel's parking lot is similar to before?


Protection 

As January 2005, there were old buttonhead bolts and just one buttonhead on top. You can drape the rope and rap off the back too if you don't want to lower or rap off the single bolt on top. Have the old bolts been replaced?

I highly doubt the bolts have been upgraded on this route. I have seen upgraded rappel anchors in the McDowell's on popular walls, but I'm guessing that nearly all of the protection bolts are 20+ years old based on my experiences.
