Description 

Can you say jugs?? It's the second bolt line from the left on the wall. Follow the bolts... the crux is most likely around the first bolt.


Protection 

3 bolts to 2 open hooks. TR access is via scrambling a gully about 30 feet to the left.

I have to say this is the most fun pitch of its grade in the canyon. Its only flaw is it's too short.

Super, super fun route... but word to the wise: don't use a heel-hook at the top to pull for the anchors, unless you absolutely have it. I ended up peeling off first time and gouged my ankle out, had to stay out of the climbing shoes for a good month. Reach far right, just past the bolt, for the well-chalked jugs at the crux. Very juggy route, a good pump.

Heel hook to clip anchors...to all would be ascenders out there, the action is over after the first bolt...everything else is a nice positive jug haul...including nice jugs from which to make the anchors...which are open shuts. I agree with Peter though...very fun but too short. Peace.

Might consider stick-clipping the first bolt. The hardest move (IMHO) is at the first bolt and the fall (on big sharp rocks) would suck. It definitely psyched me out. If you're taller than 6', this won't be an issue for you. The only 10a move is right at the first bolt, the rest climbs like 9.

I agree w/Caleb's comments. This may not be the best climb for someone who is just breaking into the 10 range. The moves for the first clip are where the route is a 10, and a fall before clipping would be extremely nasty.

I replaced the anchor on this today, there are no longer hooks but two steel perma-draws with Fixe bolts and hangers.
