The crux is at the start just past the second bolt on the face. Once you have made the crack climbing is much easier.


Rough Canyon about a 100 meters upstream from where the creek touches the left wall. It requires approximately 30 minutes of hiking.


In Camalots: 1 each- #0.5, #0.75, #1, #2, #4, and 3 quickdraws. 2 bolt anchor.

Didn't mean to give it that rating and now I don't know how to take it off. It is really well protected. I still need to get out there and paint the bolts so they aren't so noticeable from the trail.
