DescriptionA must do route for Rock Canyon. Easy approach, sustained difficulty, and good rock all make for an enjoyable climb.
Green Monster is the obvious larger crack up the right side of the slab.
The crack is filled with tasty holds if you prefer to venture in, or if you don't like you put your arm in the mouth of the monster, you can smear the slab and lie back the cracks lip.
ProtectionCamalots 1 through 4, mostly size 2. We placed 9 pieces. Secure, two-bolt chains at the top.
Three #2, two #3, two #4, and a handful of smaller sized gear to supplement. You could also use large (hand size) hexes to easily protect the last 20 feet. Save the #3s and #4s for once the crack starts trending right.
