Description [Suggest Change]

This is a good scramble, or perhaps lead. There are only a few moves of note on the route, but it is a pleasant jaunt and the view from up on the summit is amazing.

Climb up a mostly wide crack which borders the main arete (NW corner of rock) for most of its length. I have never placed gear on this route, but it seems it would take a few pieces, particularly wider stuff.

Location [Suggest Change]

This route is the visible crack seen from the canyon's main trail when up at higher elevations or from over on the descent from the Devil's Thumb. A wide crack climbs up and towards the summit from the main arete on this rock.

Protection [Suggest Change]

A light rack with large pieces, if desired.

Fun climb. Worth a lap, if you hiked all the way up here for the Devil's Thumb. To get down scramble North on the East face till you find a tree that helps you step down the last steep section. Jan 20, 2009
