Toprope to practice placing gear
Climbing restricted due to tourist safety MORE INFO >>>


Good route for training beginning trad climbers or topropers. Short route that's easy to protect with good rests. Face climbing to a ledge on the right. Scramble past the 1st bush to 10ft of stemming, passing the 2nd bush along the way. Make it over a crux bulge, climb 10ft more and top out. Some vegetation but, overall, a fun climb.


Closer to the down-walk from the rim than Griffo. Come back only about 25ft back on the trail toward the rim overlook. Look for the blocky base of the cliff with a flat area 5ft wide in front of it and a tree. Very close to the access trail. Not mentioned in guides.


Easy to protect with a just handful of gear: 3 or 4 midsized nuts and a couple 1-2" cams. Tree and cracks make it easy to setup an anchor at the top.

Believe it or not, Paul D said that all these lines in here have been climbed way back when.

Not only way back when, but by who knows how many.
But hey, if one gets the feel of the FA, who cares.

Paul D, any idea if there is a variation top out left that feels like a 5.9? Did that one today and I must have gone off route a bit, weird mantle top out...
