This route is located at the far end of the ledge system that runs beneath the north face of the Pinnacle. It goes up an obvious arete that is a few feet left of the Army Route corner system. The start has some friable rock, but the climbing quickly becomes very good. The crux is looking for tricky holds while trying to pull a bulge and switch side of the arete at the same time. Enjoy.


Quickdraws only for this shorter route.


Great route for a warm up. Pulling the bulge is rather simple if you know how great the hold is to the left of the arete. This climb without any beta on that hold would make it rather difficult, but with knowledge of that jug it puts this climb in the 5.9+ range. The aforementioned hold is also very chalked up so its not hard to find. Except for the bulge move, this route would probably go at 5.8 due to its slabby nature. One of the must dos in the canyon.

Climbed yesterday (4/15/2018). Three bolt anchor up top, but none of them look super reliable. Had no issues, but a couple of them were wiggly, and all have some rust and discoloration.

Edit: completely agree with Jason T. above. The crux move is 5.9, but the rest of the route is no harder than 8. Apr 16, 2018
