Straight edge climbing. For more information, support the park and buy the guidebook by Stewart Green.

FWIW, it is not entirely clear what the shaded section on the Red Rock Canyon Open Space guidebook topo for this route means. This route ascends from slightly right of middle of a very low angle slab jutting out from the cliff here.


It lies just north of Whale Rider.


5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

While doing The Captain, I noticed that Finnacle appears to be missing the hanger on the first bolt, the stud is still there. Another party mentioned that the anchors on HMS and Red Venus are missing as well.
