This is the hardest route on the North Canyon Wall. It follows the bolted face to the right of "Blockhead". The first bolt is at the very bottom, about chest-height from the ground, and is there just as much for the belayer as the climber to prevent both from tumbling down to the bottom of the canyon in the event of a fall before clipping the next-higher bolt. The first part involves using probably one of the most uncomfortable finger-pockets i've ever encountered, and once past that it really doesn't let up. The climb also includes a cool middle-finger/thumb pinch hold into a pair of small pockets a little more than 1/2 way up, smack in the middle of the face. It's a fun climb, but liable to give you some headachs...
