Grinder, 5.9

Raging Dude to the right, Grinder to the left....
  • Raging Dude - 55’- 5.11a/
  • Nasty route in my opinion, fun scrambling terrain behind it though. Way back in right hand corner of the Enclosure. Easy climbing on sloper edges to a human size arch, then sparse sand features to anchor over top edge. Five bolts, two suspect.

  • Grinder- 55’- 5.9/
  • Worst route in the park? I think so. Wide sand filled chimney/crack/overhanging start, then easy hand crack up dirty corner to a tree. Rope will want to stuck, I do not advise rapping the route. Either traverse some exposed ground to Ranging Dude’s anchor or scramble straight up and to catch a ledge system down and around Ranging Dude’s wall. If you do this, take the time to explore. Pretty cool up here.
