Description Suggest change

This is the shallow, left facing corner about 100 feet left of Shibumi and 25 feet right of the edge of the main formation. It can be seen on the topo page 152 of the Eldorado Canyon guidebook, starting at a split block on the ledge system that traverses the formation.

Power up the steep corner via thin face moves and stemming to good holds about 35 feet up. From here, the angle kicks back and it's about .10a straight up and slightly right through a small roof to the obvious ledge sysem. Belay here or continue right and slightly down to the tree on Shibumi.

The topo says 120 feet to the ground, but one 60m rope will get you down. This route is really fun!

Protection Suggest change

Rack 2 each up to a #2.5 Friend. Bring a few micro nuts for the start.
