Description

Climb straight up the face. The crux comes at a small bulge in the wall.

Location

Teaching rock is the "hump" of The Camel, just off the Rim trail. Easy walk on/walk off. Follow trail down west side to reach the start.

Protection

There are three TR routes on the west face and three sets of anchor bolts. Use the middle set for this climb. Bring lots of webbing to extend anchor.

There is a few lines up this route, none of which were 5.6. The line strait up over the bulge and pass the hole was maybe 5.8 and the mantel finish over the bulge and below the anchor is a solid 5.8+ to 5.9 move. If you were to skip the finish then maybe it's could be the hardest 5.6 ever. My guide book called it 5.9 with variations. Fun climb none the less. Apr 16, 2012

I agree this is about a 5.7/8+ and there are a few ways up. Nonetheless pretty fun route. Jan 12, 2015

Center bolts are bad. Went to test bolts and one spun and water squirted out. Others were rusted externally threaded bolts. Other bolts externally threaded and rusted as well. Suggest people look at asca site to understand good vs bad bolts. Also scramble out is on a saddle and suggest belay as rock is loose and potential for an accident. Sep 6, 2015
