If you have bothered to drive all the way up the winding canyon and battle past the bikers riding the white line, then CLIMB THIS ROUTE!!! Starta the same as for The Pump and The Pendulum, but after you clip the second bolt, start heading left into the small cutout and good underclinging jugs. Head straight up for a tricky crux that might leave your pinkie screaming to gain a jug rest. Then, fun climbing, including a deadpoint off two crimps (redpt. crux), leads out to the last bolt and over the roof.... A fun little mantle awaits you at the top before the anchors. There are sustained 5.12 climbing with a couple hard moves in the middle, the technical crux isn't too bad, the redpoint crux is fighting the pump towards the end.


This is in the middle of the roadside crag in Deer Creek Canyon.


6 bolts, 2-bolt anchor with chains.

This is one of the most beautiful lines I have ever seen! Can't wait to get strong enough to climb. Congrats Jables Aug 5, 2008

This is hands down the best climb at the crag. Definitely worth climbing despite its lack of height. Feb 3, 2009

Great route! Good work bolting and sending this thing, Jables. Deceptively pumpy, and crazy fun. Looking forward to linking this one. The movement is just plain good. Mar 4, 2010
Damn, Jason! You're crazy. What a steep burl fest with little holds. I don't know how you do it! I noticed that draws were hanging on the route but not the anchors. It would be interesting to send the route and get to the anchors only to realize you don't have any of your own draws, just a good pump. Sep 6, 2011
