Description

The uber-classic canyon trad route! A splitter fingercrack up a yellow, right-facing dihedral capped by a roof. Ascend it using assorted stemming, laybacking, fingerlocks, and faceholds; save some energy for the devious traverse below the upper roof to the anchors.

Location

On the left side of the wall. Obvious splitter yellow dihedral.

Protection

Doubles of medium stoppers BD #8-#10 work great, also some #.4-#.75 camalots or equivalent, and one larger #2 or #3 for the top.

I would suggest a #3 c4 for the roof. I had a little trouble getting my #2 c4 in a placement quickly, maybe i'll not be as concerned about a little extra weight next time lol. Apr 18, 2009
