Description 

"Laugh Not". 620' 5.8R. The climb is located on the left side of Uneva Mine Canyon. From I-70 drive 3.2 miles to a dirt road on the right. High clearance can drive another 1/4 mile to a trail head and BLM map of area. From here follow track into Uneva Canyon. The Chocolate stripes slabs are obvious. The route lies up the narrow dike that leads into the massive scoop formation. Classic slab climbing.

1) Up the delicate slab to a bolt at 60'. Continue more steeply passing two more pro bolts and odd cam placement to belay ledge and good cam anchors. 100' 5.8R
2) Follow slab to a bolt at 40'. Continue up slab past another bolt to double anchors. 120' 5.8R
3) Move out left then to a bolt at 50'. Continue past good #1 camalot placement to a small ledge and double anchors. 200' 5.7R
4) Straight up keeping to dark brown rock to the summit and rap anchors. Register in cairn down to right. 200 '5.4

Descent.... Three 200' raps to to the ground. FA. Paul Ross, Layne Potter. 21 May 2004.
