4 out of 5 stars Worth the walk

Long walk into Wonderlands north but worth it if you spend the day out there. Climb timbuktu also. a crazy full body stem (hands on one wall feet on the other) between boulders gets you onto the route. Note: unprotected BAD landing if you blow the transition onto the boulder. Great holds and belly roll get you to first bolt. Fight barndoor for 3 more bolts to crux as angle gets steeper. Crux is 5 ft above last bolt. done by putting my foot as high as my right elbow and rocking over hands to hit slopers at lip. 3 bolt anchor. Can be top roped by (cheater bolts make it possible to top rope protect the rig) 3rd class climbing off the slab with a jump onto the route. Fantastic adventure!!!
