Access Issue: Crawdad Canyon is private property. Details


Great fun route with a small roof that is the crux. There's a finger pocket that's a savior if found. A long reach is helpful to get through this (or faith in your feet).


Off the pool deck just at the bottom of the ladder. A plaque marks the beginning of the route.


8 bolts to sport anchors

As good as any route at the Fly Trap if not all of Crawdad. Everything you want from stem, slab, crimp, steep, etc!! Unlike other routes here, this one probably does earn it's grade at the balancy middle section of the route where a fall would be somewhat nasty. Have faith in those feet and toes at the crux!!

There are 2 routes that start at the same place here. The bolted line that splits to the left (the pictures you see people climbing) is not moucha. The name of this route is called A Fly in the Ointment 5.10c/d and has pretty thin moves on a slabby to vertical wall. The bolt line that splits to the right is moucha 5.10b. Moucha starts on the slab then head right to a roof with nice pockets to a lieback section. I had a friend climb Ointment thinking it was moucha because of the pictures online. He did good until he got pumped at the anchors. He missed the clip and took a 20 foot whipper, the fall was clean! Apr 4, 2009

It is easy to get confused and bear left following the bolts to fly in the ointment. I could not get through the thin crux section and couldn't figure out why I was having so much trouble with a 10b. Then I went back and tried the right side. It is a beautiful climb and in my opinion, one of the best at the canyon. May 2, 2010

One of the best routes for its grade in the canyon. Don't miss this one. And yes, it veers to the right after the 1st bolt. Mar 2, 2013

Shares the first bolt with A Fly in the Ointment (5.10+) and then moves right. May 5, 2015
