Description

This is a great route that screams to all climbers entering Rock Canyon for the first time, "Come climb me!" It is situated high up above the road and is a perfect crack that splits the Ed and Terry Wall.

The route eats up as much hand size gear as you have. But be warned, you might need to get creative if you only have a standard trad rack and don't like to take long falls. But really, how can you fall out? The crack is that good! (Okay, if your crack technique is weak, you could possibly fall out...)

"Main" crack sums it up. Climb up the obvious crack through a roof and follow it as it curves left until it tops out at chains.

Descent: A 60 meter rope will reach the ground. A 50 meter rope won't. I was able to set up a toprope for my second using a 60 meter, but it just barely reaches.

Protection

A standard trad rack works, however, you will love having as many #2 and #3 camalots (or their equivalents) as you own. Actually, you don't really need a standard rack, just the size I mentioned above.
