This is a weird route. Entering the chimney was tricky, and exiting it sucked. The inside of the chimney is super sharp. It tore some small holes in my shirt, and I'd probably wear jeans if I ever climb it again. The rock all over is pretty loose. The belayer can expect a constant rain of pebbles.
Having said all that... It was kind of fun and is unique for the canyon. It's worth climbing if you're looking for some of the canyon's more obscure trad climbs.
I took a full set of cams from tiny to 6 inches. I placed purple, red, and gold Camalots, plus a #6 Friend.
