The route is directly to the left of Shotgun beginning it follows the discontinuous cracks and corner angling to the left and pulls the roof continuing to the right towards the anchors for Shotgun. There is a fixed pin that can be clipped when pulling the roof. The protection is a little tricky above the roof.

A standard rack works fine the largest piece I used was a #3 C4.

This route is a must do in Ogden Canyon.


Did this on TR today. I think it would actually be easier to lead this since you wouldn't have the rope issues to deal with on the overhang. The roof on this is certainly more difficult to surmount than on Shotgun and I think the roof LG&M seems easier. Just me? Sep 17, 2010

This is a really great climb for a new trad leader. There are lots of places to put all different kinds of protection. The stances to place the pro are all good. The move from the "apex" of the roof out onto the face is fantastic, but it felt a little harder than a 5.7 move. None of the rest of the climb is any harder than 5.5 or 5.6 Oct 21, 2010

Up to the roof was really fun, but the traverse over to the chains for "Shotgun" completely ruined it for me. Its difficult to protect, and the rope drag can get really bad. Jun 2, 2014
