DescriptionThis route lies just right of center on the West Face of the East Wall of Grand Canyon; the left-most of 3 bolted routes on the right-hand section of this face. Begin left of a shallow crack/corner system.
Climb up and clip a bolt, then go down and begin climbing well to the right of the bolt. (Why this bolt was placed here is a mystery as the route does not go up past it). Up face to a horizontal (place medium gear here), then up and left to another bolt. (This bolt is also in a contrived spot). Move back right then up and then back left (10c) to easier ground. Up and left is a final bolt which is passed on the left (10a/b).
No real cracks are found at the top of the route, gear is found well to the right (as facing cliff). Walk off to the right. Bolts have been replaced in recent years (but should have been moved to protect the actual line of the route).
