Upper Canyon access closed - 8p Mar. 22 - 5p Mar. 28 MORE INFO >>>


Toy Box is the leftmost route starting off the main ledge. Clip 2 bolts up the bulging slab to gain the stemming corner above. Pushing and stemming past 2 more bolts (crux) leads up to the beautiful, gray, triangular headwall and the hand crack just below the 2-bolt anchor. It has some wild, tricky moves!


6 bolts and 2-bolt anchor w/chains.

The crux moves on this are not obvious. You really have to search for handholds, and the stemming is not obvious either, but the route is challenging and fun.

Definitely a pushing, stemming crux.... Glad you guys got up there to check it out! Those final moves up on that perfect stone are sweet!

Very challenging crux moves. Going back to the Playpen another day to figure these out. For those that know them, are they reach and height dependent? Or am I just completely missing them? Fun route.

Push with your left hand on the "tooth", and match your left foot below it.... Push first, then reach up left!

FWIW, I thought it was reach/height-dependent. A shorter climber like my partner that day had a much harder time than I did.

10c. The new guidebook gives this a 10a, but 2/3 of us felt that this was the hardest of the 5 climbs here. Tricky stem with thin finger holds in the crack. You have to get your left foot up pretty high.
