Panorama of ogden canyon with climber on route


classic climb, small holds to whole way up. there is a big loose flake or rock up there, dont touch it, it could fall and likely kill the belayer and hit the cars below. belayer needs to be anchored at the bottom


walk up and around the routes by the hole in the rock, then scamble out on this little ledge.


fixed bolts, up to two bolt anchors at top

Bolted every five feet. Probably one of my favorite climbs in the canyon! Last fifteen feet or so are a run-out, but are extremely easy.

I bolted and climbed this route in 2001 (if remembered correctly). This is my favorite route that I have bolted in Ogden (I've only put up a few). Glad to see people enjoying it.

Thanks Tom! This is definitely fun! Lived right at the mouth of Ogden Canyon for a summer and this was great as it had afternoon shade.
