BETA PHOTO: Crystal Jug (5.7). Bolts/belays are approximate.

Description 

Pitch 1 (5.7, 90 feet)
Start 15' east of Love Canal on a steep fin to reach a bolt 20' off the ground (or you can get to this bolt by walking up the fin on the left side). Continue past the first bolt clipping three/four more bolts to the anchor. The crux of the climb is between bolt two and bolt three.

Pitch 2 (5.6, 80 feet)
From the anchor, look up and to the left to see the first bolt of pitch two. From there follow the line of bolts (6 bolts) along easy and well protected rock.

NOTE - Expect serious rope drag if climbing this route in one long pitch. We also had some difficulty pulling the rope after a double rope rappel.


Protection 

4 quickdraws for P1, 6 quickdraws for P2, 2 two bolt anchors with twisted links.

Watch out for the cactus above the 1st bolt on the right.
