Description

A fun but short pumpy route leading out of a large west facing corner. A start going to the left of the bolts is much easier than going over the top of bolts themselves and may lower the grade a little. Bolts are well placed and the climbing is pretty straightforward. Grade seems a little soft.

Location

Located on the Lefthand side (facing the cliffs) of Upper Fifth Canyon. This route is the leftmost of three routes that begin at a detached Boulder in front of the cliff face. The approach is typical to get to Upper Fifth then traverse left and up to the cliff base.

Protection

5 bolts/chain anchor

Consider long draws (extendable alpine draws would be best) for bolts 2, 3, and 4 to mitigate risk of cutting rope on a sharp edge. A friend was top-roping this route today, fell between the first and second bolt when the rope got caught in a slot with a sharp edge and sliced the sheath to the core. Be aware of sharp edges both leading and top-roping. Jun 18, 2017
