The crux is getting through the big overhanging section. It is all good! This is an excellent route that is safely bolted.


This is in Boulder Canyon, across the creek from Coney Island 9.2 miles from the Elephant Buttresses. Park on downhill side of the road at single vehicle pullout before guardrail. Hike uphill after crossing creek to an obvious wall with big, overhanging face. Approach time: 5 minutes.


7 bolts plus 2 anchor chains.

This route is a ton of fun! The approach is a short walk up a steep hill full of fallen trees and brush, and then are you're at the base of the climb. It's extremely well-protected, which is awesome, since after the first bolt it is steep and overhanging the whole way up. This is a must climb for anyone hanging around the Boulder Canyon area, it's just way too much fun to pass up.
