Description Suggest change

Nice route. If you wanna place gear in the canyon, this is one to consider. It starts up a big left-facing dihedral, goes over a bulge, then later a roof. There are plenty of placement options. As the climbing gets easier (although the rock is a bit sketchier), head left up under the huge overhang. There's an anchor there that you can rap off (or continue on with the short second pitch named "Upper Cut"--recommended).

The Colorado Front Range book lists this as over a 100 foot rappel, but it's not. The length of the climb is more like 80 feet total. It has a great belay ledge with nice views of the canyon and kayakers in the spring.

Protection Suggest change

Medium rack. I only used wires and cams, though hexes would have taken well....
