This is close to the base of the climb - scramble up a boulder just left of the base of the route and then head away from the wall and climb down the other side of the boulder. These chains are bolted into the side of the boulder facing the canyon. Single rope rap (60m) to another ledge. From there, another single rope rap will take you down even further. The second rap has a fixed line near the edge of the ledge that will let you batman lower yourself (about 5 feet) to the next rap station. The second rap station is within 15 feet of where the first rap station drops you. Thanks for whoever put these up!

We used two ropes to rap off the top (as seen in the picture), but this was not needed. A single 60 will get you down. Apr 1, 2013
