Description

A short crack, loose and crumbly at the bottom, with six feet of really nice tight hands/off-fingers at the top.

Location

About ten feet left of Butterface on the same face. Uphill (north) and in the gully to the west of the main Appendage climbs.

Protection

A few cams from .5 to 3 inches. Hangers-and-chain anchors.

Not really worth climbing, but I had to name and report it so that Darren falls one further behind in his quest to climb all named lines in Rock Canyon. Hi Darren :-)

I decided that the line really isn't worthy of its own set of chains, but if anyone feels differently (after climbing it), I could probably be persuaded to put some in.

Please tell me you named this after Christian Burrell... Oct 25, 2008
I'm not sure how I feel about having a piece of crap named after me...can I at least collect royalties? Oct 27, 2008

I actually really enjoyed this little climb. I'm a sucker for jamming, and on this one you can't chicken out and use face holds. Felt pretty stiff for 5.7. Cool! I think this route is worth doing if, you know, you're into this sort of thing... Apr 18, 2009

I thought that this was a fun climb with a couple of thin hand jams and a few tricky finger-locks.
I would have given it more stars but for three reasons:
1). It's a little dirty.
2). It's a little loose.
3). It's named after Burrell.

Wait...

4). Put the chains in and they will come... May 30, 2009
1) DK loves picking on me...
2) Tristan and I went and did this and I was surprised that it was actually quite good. May 30, 2009

So I went up to this route with my family just a little while ago, thinking it was The Ledge and we top-roped it. I almost killed myself by rapelling off a big rock above and setting up an anchor point. But once we finally did, we all took turns top-roping the route. Even my little sister who is 8 years old was able to do it just because of her long reach and ability to do the splits.

As of right now, with the anchors so low, it shouldn't be top-roped. But, it would be a fantastic route for a beginning climber to learn and practice trad climbing and using nuts and cams. Sep 6, 2016

The route description pretty much holds true. Short, dirty, kinda awkward climbing. Worth doing if you're in the area, but nothing to write home about. Pay close attention to your placements, the rock is still pretty crumbly. Aug 3, 2017
