Description

This route is located on the Aquarium Wall at the rappel tree above Parallel Development (route 1, page 177, Rossiter's guide to Boulder Canyon). Access the route by going 100 yards downstream from the Aquarium Wall and cross the creek. Go right up a faint trail to the base of a moss-covered slab. Pitch 1: Climb the the dirty slab past three bolts to a belay anchor on the right side of the slab. Pitch 2: Start just left of "Nowhere Man" and reach for a big knob. Clip the first bolt and make a series of cool slab moves on wonderful knobs tending left past several bolts. Gain a small ledge and make some thin, devious moves up thin seams. Reach the "Finn" and make more thin moves to a bucket and a good ledge. Crank up on good hold to the anchor. One of the best slab routes in Boulder Canyon. Three stars!

Protection

Eight bolts lead to a two-bolt anchor.
