This is a really weird line that starts on the right face of an inside corner that tops out on a ledge. Once you're finished resting on the ledge (it is such a long climb) proceed to the crux bulge that ends at the anchor ledge. The real crux is routefinding, rather, figuring out why this was bolted in the first place. Nevertheless, this makes for a decent warm-up, and is fun for the family to top-rope.
Shady side of the canyon, one of the first routes you encounter from the trail. Starts on the right face of a corner. You can walk off the top or rappel off of the anchors.
6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

There is a pretty good sequence of 5.9ish climbing right directly above the bolt line to the left of the ledge. If someone would finish it off by putting a bolt to the left of the ledge, and then put a set of anchors to the left of the ledge, this would be an awesome climb. As it is, clipping the bolt above the ledge and then trying to get up to the anchors is dangerous. The bolt above the ledge won't protect a fall onto that ledge unless the belayer really keeps a tight reign on the climber.
