When you tire of the routine corners and faces that typefy T-Wall stone, it's time to poke around a bit and pry open the Casket. High Indiana Jones-value on this one.

Rounding the corner left of the falls, a squint into the darkness reveals a gaping, ever-widening chasm, choked with blocks reminiscent of towers on the Colorado Plateau. Surely, you think, this cannot be 5.9. And yet, with unlikely reaches to secret jugs, with wild stemming across the chasm, with locker hand jams under the huge chockstones, the Casket gives it up.

Location

The Casket lies left of the waterfall, just around the corner from Psycho Path, etc. When you turn the corner to confront a dark and gaping maw, you're there.

Belay on the big ledge, or lower off on new rings.

Silver Bullets

Surprisingly, you'll need nothing larger than a 3 camalot, although 2 of these will be required to keep most folks happy on their first ride. Long runners like you mean it. In the summer, consider a spider wand, unless the traffic increases dramatically on what is basically a cult classic.
