Start up the face on good holds with fun climbing for about 15 or 20 feet until protection is possible. Continue up the face and gain a crack system and continue to the bolted anchor.

I say PG-13 because the first pro is a bit high.


This is located on the right side of the canyon, two face systems uphill of Pirouette and just right of a large chimney. Note the crack system that runs from the middle of the face to the top.


Nuts and cams, small through hands. There is a fixed bolted anchor visible from below.

Good, varied climbing with good pro except for bottom 12 ft which is the crux. You can place a couple marginal small stoppers that may or may not protect a ground fall before good pro about 15 ft up. Not sure why double bolt anchors are 20 ft below the top of the wall, where there are slings w rap rings around a tree. Top face is good climbing and about 5.9. This route felt significantly harder than Pirouette.
