Nice route. The NULC guidebook puts this at .10a but I agree that it's slightly harder just for the weird moves near the bottom (between #1 and #3)

This climb has a few variations, going up to the left or right from the bolts.

For a really fun route go up to the left and through the chimney to another set of chains. It's high, but you can still top-rope or lower to the ground with a 60m rope. Probably rates a 10c or so.

In my opinion, horrible climb, every hold is greasy, and it makes the whole climb sketchy. Way better climbs at fucoidal to do.

Another harder variation is to continue up past the chimney anchors(mentioned in Ryan P.'s comments. NU gives this section 11a) and finish on Adios Amigos anchors. 12a/b.

Super fun climb! Crux is definitely between 2nd and 3rd bolts. Just watch out for the hornets at the top by the chains! Ha... There were like 10 waiting to greet me.

This is one of my favorite climbs in the canyon (first climbed it when I was 14 or so). I don't get around to it all that often due to the grease, but IMO a must do while in the area.

pretty fun climb, but the greasy feet make it much less fun. Bet it was awesome when it was first set!
