Thought this was the start to Triassic Sands. Guess I should have realized it wasn't when I was getting worried on the 10a lieback/offwidth that is the start of Sandblast. I would have been more comfortable had I brought the five or six. The climbing isn't too hard actually but it's runout if all you've got is up to a #3. The climbing after is pretty good with some sort off fragile edges. It's a good lead into Triassic if you need to bypass the first pitches.
With Michael sometime in 2010. I led both pitches, remember struggling with the first pitch a bit, cold, windy, etc. Thought the rock was all pretty bomber by RR standards. I bypassed the off width start by using a bit of Sand Felipe. The 2nd pitch was quite enjoyable. Both fixed stations are shared with Triassic Sands. I would rate the first pitch of Sandblast as difficult as any pitch on Triassic and have led all the pitches on both routes. Worth doing. Sand Felipe, Sandblast, Triassic and Amber make for one hell of a day of moderate climbing at RR. Does not get much better.
Top roped first two pitches of this after doing Triassic sands. Watch for loose rock - almost pitched a 20 pound block on my belayer but managed to push it back into place. Don't quite get the bolt on pitch one - 2 inches from a bomber yellow alien placement??
