Description

Decent climbing on good pockets and suspect flakes, this is the easiest bolted route in the canyon. Get on it to warm up and get a feel for the rock and the rock quality on the rest of the routes will feel awesome!

Location

This is the fifth bolted route from the start of the routes as you walk up-canyon. It climbs left of a blunt, rounded arete of sorts left of some large huecos and dishes. It starts from a ledge that one must scramble up to.

Protection

5 bolts to a two bolt anchor on a nice ledge. Note that all guidebooks state 7 bolts to anchors but unless there are two down lower below the obvious ledge where we started, there are only 5 bolts on this route.

There's one suspect flake around the second or third bolt. It's a side pull out left, and sounds hollow if you knock on it.
  • **So don't yard on it, leave it alone** (duh).
If you use the fairly obvious holds to the right of the flake (straight above the stance from which you contemplate grabbing it), you'll enjoy a quality 9+/10- crux. The rest of the holds are fine, and it's a good climb. Aug 26, 2009
