Rock Area Index / Sandwich Notch / The Contender (5.10)
Directions:  Located 50' right of the Highlander Wall on another small Buttress.
Description: The name indicates that this route is a contender for the title of ìBest of Class.î
    Pitch 1: Deceptively difficult face climbing leads past 3 bolts on a slightly less-than-vertical wall.

Gear: A #4 Friend and the 4th bolt protect the overhanging final moves. The cool 1 inch thick natural thread below the last bolt can be used instead of the #4 Friend.
Descent: rappel from a tree, or walk off climberís right
