Description

This is just a great route with an amazing position. The exposure is amazing for a 5.5 and the protection is great. There are tons of different places to start. If you start just above the darker rock it takes about 4 pitches. Follow the crack until the huge over hung top then exit to the left with good pro. Descend to the north going down a drainage to the north. A bit of fourth class down climbing required.

Location

It's the prominent corner on the north side off jumpoff canyon. Start whenever you feel you need to rope up. Rock quality gets better the higher you get.

From the Jump-Off Canyon trailhead at 425 N and Harrison Blvd (41.26730,-111.94769) follow the obvious trail past through the shrub oak and past some homes to the canal road. The trail continues from the canal road at the point where the canal goes underground. Make your way east to the mouth of Jump-Off canyon.

Here is a map of the complete approach, route and descent: caltopo.com/m/TB7Q.

Protection

Great gear. Need bigger peices but nothing bigger than 3.5 bd.

Adventurous route for sure! Fun little Sunday afternoon outing. One of my first adventurous trad routes. The 3 biggest challenges; finding pro, not pulling on loose rocks, and rope drag. I guess that was all part of the adventure though! Each pitch was better than the last. Our last 2 pitches were quite vertical and had tons of exposure. The rock quality on the last pitch was superb. It took us 5 and a half hours to get up and down (4 hrs and 40 minutes for the hike and climb to the top).

Definitely exit via the north. There's actually a trail that'll lead you down. Although, probably the most overgrown and steepest trail I've ever hiked on! Have fun! May 6, 2013
