In the crux.

Raptor Closures - 2016 Tunnel 2 Closure Lifted / Upper Canyon Road closures MORE INFO >>>


This is a beautiful, overhanging face that continues up and right after starting on The Gauntlet. The hard climbing on this route is separated by 2 great rests, so rest up when you can and power through the hard sections until you reach the steep and juggy finish.


This route starts with the first 2 bolts on The Gauntlet and then continues straight up and right.


7 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

You bet! It's super fun! I had such a good time bolting and climbing this line. It has cleaned up nicely and will only get better!

Good work with this new route, it climbs well. The crux up high is pretty hard and fun, love the big moves.

I'm psyched you enjoyed it! My goal was to find the best way to get to the the upper section of hard climbing. The ending that is steep jug hauling and fun, slightly unnecessary, hero throws is a fun way to finish it.

After firing this one and since it's a new route, I thought I would give my 2 cents on the grade.... The route is a hardish dihedral (lower crux) to a longish pumpy 5.11- to a hard scrunchy/yet reachy (the hand holds are far apart but the feet are super high) 3 move boulder problem. I don't know if it's my height, but that boulder problem felt super hard for me (V7/8) making the route feel a touch harder than Sonic or even Evil... just my thought. Very fun and great vision to the FA. Thanks again.

Congrats on the send! I agree with those comments. The upper crux is hard, but short. Compared to other routes in the canyon, I think that 13- is about right if I'm being honest with myself.

Cool route! Top crux is rad!!! Not too scrunchy for my 5'9" self.
