Description 

This route is on the blunt prow left of where old reliable succumbed to the ages. Start atop old reliable carnage in double cracks to gain the sloping ledge where the first bolt is clipped. Follow bolts (good foot work neccessary) to the sheer face w/right-diagonaling crack. Follow crack to commiting finish moves. One of my favorite clip-ups in the canyon.

Protection 

Medium-to-small cams for the start. Stoppers or TCUs for top crack. QDs.

There is a fixed nut in that top crack.

wow, this seemed really hard, I couldn't even do a bunch of the moves on it. The fixed nut is still there.

I like the quote "One of my favorite clip ups in the canyon." It is a great clip up - with 15 feet of 5.10 crack climbing and then ends with maybe 30 feet of gear climbing, including the crux.

It is a great route, highly recommended and it is really well protected. I also think this one is probably 12c.
