Steve Canyon is a well known windy day crag; this route (which faces west and is sunny most of the day) is a good bet when the "phoon" winds strike. This route is located on the upper of two west facing formations that constitute the east side of Steve Canyon. This is a fun, moderate face and crack route with decent protection.

Start up the farthest left major crack system; where it peters out, a bolt protects moves up and left to a horizontal. Above (crux) face climb past 1 more bolt to the summit. The face climbing above the last bolt eases as you go higher, but a cool head is necessary to prevent a longish fall.

A 2 bolt anchor is found on top, Either rappel or take the easy (Class 4) walk off (left) under the block.


1 to 2 inch cams work pretty well to protect the crack and horizontal; 2 bolts.
