Description

Start up a rough and textured limestone slab with plenty of edges (and a bonus two-finger pocket) and plenty of friction though three bolts.

Step up under a bulgy roof, clip the fourth bolt, surmount the obstacle, and then continue up through two more bolts to the anchors.

The last bit has some rough, brown, chert intrusions that are kind of cool and which form the holds.

Location

The left of the two bolted routes.

Protection

6 bolts, hangers-and-chains anchors.

This route can be toproped by scrambing up the gully located to the east, reaching a ledge above the wall.

I am terrible at roofs so this is why I thought this route was a little harder than the right route. It is a long way up the canyon but these routes are worth doing. I enjoyed them a lot. Oct 24, 2008

Enjoyed this one significantly more than the 5.9. Mostly solid crimpers (and the skin-friendly 2 finger pocket) the whole way up. Solid rock with good friction to some pretty rockin camouflaged chains. What's not to like? Sep 13, 2008
Without a doubt, the better of the 2 routes here. You actually get some good grips (yes, including the 2-finger pocket). The steep roofish feature is pretty neat and the top takes a bit of figuring out. Not bad. Sep 12, 2008

The rock here is very grippy and the climb has some fun movement. Its technical then lets up to some jugs then a nice roof, then the top blanks out a bit so you can use your brain. overall a thoughtful climb. thanks perin for developing this area. Sep 9, 2008
