Location

These climbs are located through the entrance of Three Finger Canyon ,around the corner from the popular 1000' of Fun.

Protection

.5 metolious was the only cam used ,perhaps carry a few more around that size.One 60m rope
Just did this route and liked it. Bolts and anchors looked good. I placed a
tri-cam to protect the start, maybe 1.5 or 2? thought maybe 5.8 pg13. Oh, sorry
just did the 1st pitch and TRed Cats Meow, 2nd looked cool but passed on the downclimb. Oct 12, 2016

Fun, committing first pitch. After the 3rd bolt you don't even want to stop for pro... having too much fun. Glad we did both pitches (easy to scramble off the back), but if I were to go again I would rap at the anchors atop pitch one. It seemed like the money to me. Oct 12, 2015

I climbed this again about a month ago with a new group and the general consensus was 5.9R for the rating. We all still had fun but I would not recommend leading this climb unless you are a solid 5.10 slab climber just to be safe. The first time I climbed it I went strait up from the second bolt. The second time I tried traversing right into the huecos and then climbing up to third bolt both were about 5.9 and the runouts are worthy of an R rating. Be safe and have fun. The anchor bolts seemed solid to me (must have been repaired). Dec 15, 2014

To Even S... Thought your favorite climbs were the scary one's ( re your personal page),if not then best stay away from here!The rock on the Reef sometimes good sometimes not is all part of the experience.As advised in the introduction to the Reef if one decides to climb here on a regular bases carry a small hand drill and a couple of baby angles.(hand drilling on this rock will often produce a hole too large to hold a bolt)So if you get off route or come to belay bolts that have deteriorated you can help yourself and others by fixing the problem.The belay Even S mentioned has also been used a lot for the 5.10 Cat's Meow sport type route .If lower off's were used when the rock was damp this could cause the bolts to become less secure.However a couple of weeks ago other climbers used this same belay and no problems have been reported ? There are now about 150 climbs on the Reef ...so lots of choice remains for those who prefere a little adventure in their lives. May 18, 2011

The anchor bolts wiggle in the rock, most holds were suspect, way sketchy, like death trap sketchy. May 17, 2011

This was a fun route it had sections of bad and good rock with a couple of long runouts but over all a fun route. Sean
