This is the easiest route that goes up the full height of Intersection Rock. It is a reasonable way to downclimb from the top.
Move up and left across a slab, go up a chute, and move left across easy face climbing to a belay. Different guidebooks illustrate different routes above here. The most obvious way is to climb (4th class) along the left side of a huge, steep flake, then traverse 20 or 30 feet right to a short final section


It starts about 50 feet right of The Waterchute, on the southeast side of the rock.

I did this climb and thought it was a fun adventure.

I took a different route than said here. 1st pitch was the same, but then I tunneled right(off belay) until I reached another short pitch of climbing. This section was dirty and grovelly and harder than 5.3 (IMHO but not worse than 5.6). Then some more gophering through passageways to a quick move to the top. I roped up for the last move just because of the fall potential. It was easy but grunty.

The way I took was more or a belly crawl/back at the playground good time than this route listed here, but fun nonetheless.

We did this in 5 pitches! (long story) We also tunneled right from the end of the first (our second) pitch. Then up a really nice hand crack that was fun jamming. Then easy terrain to a short chimney to the top. The move to get in the chimney was fun and easy to protect.

Confusing to get out of, don't go directly up after first pitch!
