Pink Man’s Burden

Pink Man’s Burden (5.11+; two pitches); FA: Paul Glover, Matt Samet, spring 2010: This is a two pitch sport line on the southwest side of Dinosaur Rock. Scramble around the eastern toe of Dinosaur Rock then head along its south face, to a good ledge on the far left side of the face. Move up easy-fifth class ramps and step right onto a ledge (0.5 Camalot/Metolius No. 3 helpful for rope management), then head up the steep, left-trending chocolate-colored band into the hanging bombay slot; pull up and in, and then continue left (5.8) along the west face of the rock via pods to a two-bolt belay. It’s helpful to pre-clip the second bolt on this pitch.

The second pitch (pre-clip the first bolt off the belay) climbs up the wildly overhanging but nicely featured, pocketed headwall. End at anchors at the lip. With a 70-meter rope, you can rappel from the top anchors back to the staging area below the route.
