Olivia Crellin top-roped on Baby Swiss


This route climbs past 2 drilled angles and 1 bolt which can't be seen from the ground to chain anchors at the top. The crux is just past the first pin. If anyone knows any info on the name or FA of this route let me know so I can add it to the description.


There are currently four sport routes on the east side of the slot canyon leading up to the "Little Narrows", this is the first route encountered. Two drilled angles can be seen from the ground.


2 drilled pins and one bolt to a chain anchor.

Did this tonight, great route for beginners. The slot that this climb is in will keep out the summer heat. It only gets sun for a couple hours in the afternoon and the belay area will be shaded pretty much all day. Great for mid summer climbs during the day. First move getting off the ground is awkward and requires some good body English or a sloppy knee. Then hand pockets and one or two finger pockets to the chains.
