Description 

Almost completely forgotten, this route starts about 25 feet up the ramp, on the left side of the Anti-Phil Wall.

Slide through a traverse down low, continue up easier terrain until you reach a large shelf, and pull through pockets to gain the anchors (see note below).

The move are fun, and the rock is solid. Unfortunately, a fine layer of sand covers the entire route. So, if you start up this one, bring a toothbrush, and make sure your belayer has some protective goggles.

NOTE: As of 6/1/03 the anchor was composed of a drop through and a hanger without a chain. So, unless you are comfortable lowering off just the drop through, bring a carabiner for the hanger.


Protection 

10-12 draws, a toothbrush.

This route is actually pretty fun. It is also one of the easiest 12c routes in the canyon. The bouldery traverse near the bottom is the crux and can be a little cryptic because of the lack of chalk. Then you move up through easier terrain to a no hands rest. After the no-hands, you have a easier crux then the chains.
