Genesis is the namesake route for the Genesis Wall (Canyon Entrance) and is a nice warm-up. This is a fun route with some good movement and is solid for the grade.

Location [Suggest Change]

This is the third route passed when walking in. It is the next route right of the shallow, right-facing corner, Book of Life.

Protection [Suggest Change]

7 bolts.

Jug just below the crux was found to be dangerously loose. I coerced it out to keep it from killing a belayer standing in the wrong spot... likely upped this route's rating a letter grade or two.

Climbed this twice yesterday. Didn't know the jug was removed. That explains why it felt hard for 5.10b/c. Consensus between my partner and me is 5.11a. Nov 7, 2012

I'll second the 5.11a rating. This route is really fun and moves really well even with a hold gone. A body tension/face section and a little power required over the roof! Cool! Sep 8, 2015
