this thang....


This route is fantastic, if only it could go on forever....It is recognized by a big right facing sidepull to start heading up to a big, flat ledge. Again, stick-clip the first bolt. The beginning is the business, but there's a move midway that will get your attention. The top slab is runout but easy.In my opinion this is one of the better routes for its grade in the canyon.


6 bolts, open cold shuts anchor

Not as hard as Alice but definately a close relative in grade. A little more boulderly but a extra pocket of fitness would be helpful. Superior movement and a get after it attitude is required. A must!

New 3rd bolt has been added so clipping from the jug is feasible if your fingers don't fit in them tiny pockets. Old 3rd remains for those who do clip it.
