Description

Starts on two crimps in the center of the boulder. Moves right to a cool tufa then punches to the jug. Traverse left using a heel hook and finish around the corner.

While there is potential for a seriously disastrous fall, this risk seemed low with appropriate spotting.

Location

Down canyon from the Jordan Boulder, park in the large lot on the left (river) side of the road. Look down canyon and up. Easily identified as it hangs slightly over the drop off on the road.

Description could not be more in reverse. Problem starts on middle of the boulder, moves LEFT to a tufa pinch then punch up to a jug and traverse right out around the lip. Mar 21, 2010

This is a perfect example of a route where the name really adds something to the experience. Were it not called "Worst Case Scenario" I don't think the gigantic tumble down the hillside would be much of a concern.

As it is though, it's pretty exciting getting your left foot up and out over the void and pushing off of it. The worst-case moves are definitely some of the easiest of the route, and the crux is totally safe. May 6, 2009
