Camping and access to canyon closed due to 12 Hours of Penitence mountain bike race.
DescriptionAfter following the main trail, there is an obvious branch to a side canyon on the right. Immediately on the right is a 'hueco ridden' buttress. This is Captain America. Do a very short 3rd class scramble up to a belay ledge. Note there is a very helpful hold (perhaps glued?? Bob - history??) to aid in this ascent.
The first clip is easy - step up, clip, step down, and then readdress the problem straight on. Note that peeling while clipping bolt 2 is not good. It is not a hard move, but stupid people like myself will hurt their ankle. Bob D's guidebook says not to lower or TR off the anchors - we did not see this as an issue...???
