Description 

This is a great route and probably the funnest of its grade in the Canyon. It climbs straight up the aesthetic grey wall above the water mound past (upstream of) the anti-Phil proper. This is to the climber's right of all the routes (The Anti-Phil, Eurotrash, etc.) in the center sector.

Boulder up past ledgy climbing and clip a couple of bolts. A cryptic, powerful crux leads to ultra-pleasant face climbing on good flat and incut edges. Treat the flake system below the anchors with care.


Protection 

8 quickdraws.

This is a very nice 5.10 warm-up if you use the quickdraw at the crux as a handhold.

There is a 3 or 4 bolt extension to this that goes at 12a and is called Blue and Black.
