Thompson Canyon Details


Shares the same start as Black Arrow (remember the guano to the right!) under the cave. Again avoid the bird slime up to the first bolt, reach high to clip the second, and trend slightly left. The wall is less than overhung after the second bolt and it looks pretty run-out. Also, it appears that holds are non-existent from the ground when looking between the 2nd and 3rd bolts. However, they are there! Keep at it. And though there are a few tricky moves above the second bolt, you will soon be touching bomber jugs before you get close to the third. Clip the third bolt and endure the crux between the third and fourth, where small holds and overhanging rock threaten, but soon there is again a jug. Continue through jugs to the anchor.


Right most route on the downhill wall but goes straight up instead of traversing right as Black Arrow does.


6 Bolts, Chains.
