Fuller Buttes Area, East Face of Jackass Rocks. This face has many fine cracks visible from the road, but closer inspection shows the cracks tend to start 15 to 20 feet above the ground. In May Mark Blanchard, Conrad Van Bruggen, Fremont Bainbridge and I climbed an interesting two-pitch route located at the north end of the face. We bypassed the blank section at the base by traversing straight left out of a chimney on a dike to where the crack began. NCCS I, F9.
