Route Description

"Dirty Dishes" is located on the right wall of Kernville Rock, between "Buggin Around," and "Clouds." The route follows interesting rock textures from ground to top. Nice introductory route to the area. Suitable for new leaders/well protected.

Pitch 1: Either ascend the left climbing ramp or from the ground up the wall directly below the ramp to a bolt on the face. Follow the line of bolts to a two bolt belay.

Pitch 2: Follow bolts to a ledge and belay.

Pitch 2 variation: Follow bolts to ledge and then continue up the 45' 5.5 wall above to a two bolt belay anchor. Upper portion is not bolted.

Both belays set with rap chains/anchors.
