Currently this is the leftmost bolted route on the crag. Climb a narrow column of clean granite.
6 bolts, 2-bolt anchor.

Another nice line. This route is about 20' left of Magic Wand, and has three small blocky overhangs just right of the climbing line (see photo). The crux is a steep headwall at the 4th and 5th bolts. The route is about 65' long.
One correction: the name of the route is "Christal Ball".

The best route we had time to do, sadly got rained on before trying the 5.10 route. Harder than the Way of the Wizard, with prettier moves. The lack of chalked holds typical for Boulder Canyon sport climbs made the crux interesting, but it's quick! Wizard Rock is a cool place to go for moderate, well-protected lines.

Fun, high quality route.

At the crux, reaching around to the left seemed like the best move to make. The crux is about a body length in distance.
