Just above the start


This short but fierce route is located on the wall directly opposite How The West Was Won in the side canyon just past Captain America. Four bolts lead to a two-bolt anchor.


4 bolts + anchor.

Several pumpy moves on steep rock - I thought this route was hard for 5.10b.

Tricky moves but fairly positive/sharp holds.

Anchors replaced because the coldshuts are gone. Head west up the short chimney and come around the top to set an easy top rope anchor.

A fun and challenging route! Sustained 5.10b/c climbing right off the deck. One little rest about 2/3 of the way up. The crux was getting from the 1st to 2nd bolt. If you peel here, there is substantial potential for a 10-12' groundfall. Belayers, pay attention! You can also easily setup a TR from above, per Levi's post.
