DescriptionThis decent climb is on the south end of the east face of the west wall of Steve Canyon.Enter the Canyon from the south and look left to a "niche" with a nice flat belay trapped up against the rock on the left, perhaps 12M north (past) the hanging flake of 'Caldelabra.' Rising from this belay is a slightly flaring crack with surprisingly good locks and jams. As the crack reaches a bulge, start using a second crack to the left and eventually transistion to that one entirely. This route can sew up reasonably and does not reqire double ropes. Judicious use of slings should suffice. Belay from cracks above, then walk to the top of Candelabra to rap off.
This is one of the easier 10's at J-tree.
