Climb a 15 foot detached pillar before reaching the crack. Start out on thin hands, to perfect hands, to wide hands (majority of the climb is BD #3s), then back to hands near the top.


At the mouth of Red Canyon on the East-facing buttress, look for the detached pillar and the obvious splitter.


BD C4s #2s and #3s also found a spot for a #4.

There are camouflaged anchors at the top.

Must do if you live in GJ. Completely worth the hike. Also save a #1 for the top. It may turn out useful.

What's a better approach: above and down...do you walk to the buttress and rap, walk down the canyon? or hike East from Liberty Cap parking and walk 2 miles East and then up? Sounds like the neighbors think this is THEIR backyard and won't allow access from the street right there at "Chinle Ct". Looks like a great line with horrible access.
