Reopened after flood damage! Details


This is the 2nd route on your left as you enter the Amphitheater. It is slightly longer than Slick Willard, but a little bit easier. Good slabby stuff. Break right at a small roof, following a line of bolts to bolted anchors.


A rope and a rack of quickdraws will be sufficient.

Definitely beats the neighboring 9. Good new leader route agreed! Aug 25, 2013

Well-bolted route, although fairly short. Good route for a new 5.8 leader. Enjoyable face climb -- would have been more fun if it had not started raining! Apr 20, 2010

This area was quite wet this week. Be aware that if we have had rains, there could be a lot of water coming down from above. We did this route anyway since the main part of the route was pretty dry, but the anchors were wet and the rock was dampish. We had hoped that it would be dry and solid (as opposed to the sandstone at the Garden or Red Rock), but it wasn't dry. Aug 20, 2008
First ascent was by Howard and Chris Brooks in 1999. Dec 5, 2002
