Photo of the route in Uneva Mine Canyon... "Slab N...
Located in the Uneva Canyon. Drive 3.2 miles from I.70 to right turn . The trail head (map)is a 1/4 mile from the turn. Follow the dirt road into the canyon the route is just past the entrance on the left side ,a right facing corner with fairly steep crack climbing.The climb stays in the shade most of the day. On the whole the rock is very good as is the protection. One could rap off after the first two pitches,the easier last pitch is not of the same quality ,but perhaps worth doing for the view ...
P1).140'. A ramp leads into the corner . Nice climbing up cracks to double anchors. 140' 5.9-.
P2).Continue up cracks to double anchors. 90' 5.9-.
