Description

A fun, moderate trad route in the Glitter Box area. Start on a low angle face and climb up the obvious crack above. The crux is near the top of the climb.

GTKO stands for Green-Throated Kettle Owl, a rare desert species.

Location

From the parking lot, follow the trail east to Lower Devil's canyon. Turn right on to the faint trail heading toward the Totem Pole. The route can be identified using the attached photo.

Protection

Stoppers, singles to 1.75", doubles of 2"-3.5", single 4". Bolted rap anchor at the top.

I have yet to climb this route! Next time that I am in the area I will. Thanks to Marcy and Geir for putting this up. Dec 30, 2016

Much of the lower ~40' of GTKO is maybe 5.7ish. The small bulge at the top is 5.8. Sep 2, 2009
