This is the easiest route that goes up the full height of Intersection Rock. It is a reasonable way to downclimb from the top.
Move up and left across a slab, go up a chute, and move left across easy face climbing to a belay. Different guidebooks illustrate different routes above here. The most obvious way is to climb (4th class) along the left side of a huge, steep flake, then traverse 20 or 30 feet right to a short final section


It starts about 50 feet right of The Waterchute, on the southeast side of the rock.

I did this climb and thought it was a fun adventure.

I took a different route than said here. 1st pitch was the same, but then I tunneled right(off belay) until I reached another short pitch of climbing. This section was dirty and grovelly and harder than 5.3 (IMHO but not worse than 5.6). Then some more gophering through passageways to a quick move to the top. I roped up for the last move just because of the fall potential. It was easy but grunty.

The way I took was more or a belly crawl/back at the playground good time than this route listed here, but fun nonetheless.

We did this in 5 pitches! (long story) We also tunneled right from the end of the first (our second) pitch. Then up a really nice hand crack that was fun jamming. Then easy terrain to a short chimney to the top. The move to get in the chimney was fun and easy to protect. Mar 5, 2008

Confusing to get out of, don't go directly up after first pitch! Apr 24, 2009

We ended up going all the way left after the first pitch into the second pitch of Mike's Books. Initially intended to go up behind the large boulder just right of Mike's Books but it didn't look very inviting. Jan 25, 2016

Climbed it 12 Jun 17 with my buddy after work. First pitch is as described in the route guide. The second pitch was super hard to figure out. we went up the main slot directly in front of the belay. I climbed up the wall right in front of the belay to clip the bolt. Then went into the chimney/slot and went up to the top of that. The anchor was on the right side of the chimney as you look up it. I tried to figure out how to get to the top from there and only came up with a trust fall/jump and some weird moves to get to a short but super flared crack to get up further. Eventually made it all the way to the top of the rock but couldn't find the rap anchors so I decided to down climb the whole pitch (wouldn't recommend it) back to the anchor. Rapped in to sections using both the bolt anchors. Fun but I wish i found the rap rings on top :/ Jun 12, 2017
