Description

A short face climb in a nice little secluded side canyon. Not remarkable, but it is a fairly easy 5.9, and worth doing to warm up. This is Route #84 in D'Antonio (1999:46), although no topos are in the guide book.

Location

From the roadside parking area, this route is in the first side canyon on the left, ca. 125 yards from the road. Follow the side canyon about 55 yards to a nice ponderosa pine near the canyon head. Just past the pine, and before you come to a nice spruce/fir, turn left into a tributary canyon. Pass about 10 yards through some chokecherry, and the face is on the righthand side of the canyon. Big Brett ascends the righthand side of the little face. A slightly overhanging crack with cold-shut anchors at the top is just to the left of the Big Brett face.

Protection

3 bolts to a 2-bolt top anchor with chains (shared with the Wallrus route to the left).
