Description

This is a fairly nice route squeezed in between Repo Man and The Good Book. Start up left of an edge, then work over it on the right, up some steeper stuff and then off of some good sidepulls on the right (shared w/ The Good Book?). A sharp crystal and a hard to spot pocket mark the business, and don't cheat off to the left at the end!

Yes, it does share a hold with The Good Book. I hate that when I was climbing it I was thinking to myself "is this thing on?" However, after that it has some fun and tricky moves. Plus this is a decent little wall in a scenic part of the canyon. I agree with the person above me, too many people are overly harsh on BoCan. Sep 7, 2014

There's no way this gets a bomb. The crux is interesting and makes the short climb worthwhile. You guys are too hard on BC. Jun 28, 2014

+1 Jason. One of the worst routes on one of the worst grid bolted crags in BoCan. Jul 11, 2011

Jason, not to disagree with your overall opinion, but if this is the worst you've climbed in the Canyon, you have OBVIOUSLY NOT climbed there much yet. There are worse, and several of them. Wait until you see the manufactured routes... "I'll show you contrived." May 15, 2008

A decent route, although easily mixed with the route to the right (the good book) try to limit yourself just before getting to the obvious jug. (5th bolt) There is a 1/2 finger pocket for the left hand and a right hand crimp to get you up and left, below the jug, from here it eases, a good route, but perhaps a little squeezed in. I give it 2 stars. Sep 13, 2001
