Description:

Funky moves up "broken rock". A large cam protects it. At mid-height, cut back right to gain the beautiful finger crack. Load up the thin crack with pro and launch into a fun layback with solid finger locks. Crux is laying back the last 20 feet. End is awsome.

3 out of 5 stars Drive-up climbing

Did this climb after a bunch of hours in the car and a hike in Day Canyon. The day was getting late. I had to get at least one climb in before the sun went down. I chose this typical sketchy looking desert pitch. I remember putting in at least one cam down low that did not look so trustworthy. The rock had a discontinuous hairline fracture on the side. Oh well, pro and go. The rest of the climb was uneventful. Sandy cracks with loose-looking interiors are a blast!
