Description:

This route, rated A3 in Desert Rock, now boasts a C1+ rating. I humped a nailing rack up to the base. I tried to find a place to nail (to justify the iron deadweight I brought) but didn't use any of it. The route is great for solitude, and for the historical aspect of the writing at the base. The rock is solid, with only a small bit of loose stuff. There is a long bolt ladder leading the anchors. The anchor is actually about 20' below the summit. There is a slung horn, to help you back to the actual anchor. Awesome desert arena.
