BETA PHOTO: Giant's Molars - Unknown Cave Routes

Thompson Canyon MORE INFO >>>


Not the greatest route at Datil and looks better from the ground then it climbs. As the guidebook states "silly climb" is a fitting description.

Start up lower angled rock past the first bolt. At the second bolt the clipping jug looks like it is ready to break off, beware. From here the climb traverses left, but following the bolts feels harder than 10+. Easier to head up a few feet then traverse left.


Right side of the cave, route closest to the anchors.


4 Bolts to shared anchors with the unknown 9+
