On the right side bulge following the obvious, short, right facing corner. Start on the left side of a big flake and make one move on smaller holds to really good jugs. There is a great jug for your left hand but it is hidden over on the far left side. Once you stand up feel over that way and you should find it. The corner has a few stemming moves and then finish on good holds with "Close Encounters." Great Warm-up and good for hanging draws on "C.E."


4 Bolts plus chains

Good route, hard 8 I think.

This is an exciting 5.8, and the hardest I have climbed in the canyon thus far. The moves and features through the first two bolts are precarious and akward, but it is the middle section stemming problem and the move up and over the mini roof that make this worth climbing any time.
