  • Description 

    Easy climbing. As of March 2012 the hardware appears to be in great shape. Possibility of a fall before the first bolt, which some may say is PG13, but the climbing is very easy.

    Location 

    High Peaks Trail, 300 yards or so north of the Juniper Canyon Trail intersection. Just 20 feet off the trail to the left if you're traveling north.

    Protection 

    One bolt half-way up. Two bolts and chains at the top. Easy rap.

    Aptly-named. Easy photo op climbing, but fun.

    An easy and short but spectacular and exposed climb with fantastic photo opportunities (obviously). Literally just off the trail. Recommended. And yes, stand up!
