Moving through the crux.

Road & nearby private property MORE INFO >>>


A few easy moves past the first bolt take you out the rightward bulge and a sequential crux. Continue past the numerous bulges and horizontals to the anchors.


The East side of the WASP Canyon is called The Post Office. This is the leftmost route on the wall. Start at the very back of the canyon, where a small creek flows out of the boulders above for most of the year.


6 bolts plus the 2 bolt anchor.

I can't remember for sure Phil, I thought I put cold shuts up there. If you go do it, maybe bring some quick links just in case. When you are exiting the canyon, you walk right under this climb. It's a cool route, you'll like it.
