Description

This is my second favorite trad line in the canyon.
Note, a fall off the start could pull you and your belayer off the ledge so it is a good idea to set up a belay anchor. The 5.9 grading is pretty stiff and should not be taken lightly. Though the rock here is pretty solid it is still soft sandstone and a fall could very likely pull gear. Make sure you are very confident at the grade before attempting.
Follow the crack up and left (crux) under an overhang then climb through a keyhole at the top. Belay off of several cracks at the top or the tree further back.

Location

This route is located around the corner from Swiss Cheese and The Dihedral Crack.
To get there climb up an easy 4th class crack to the left of the Dihedral crack to a ledge about 15ft up. Follow this ledge around the corner and continue until you reach a left facing overhanging crack, belay here

Protection

Small rack from .75 to 3 camalots, (two #2's will allow you to sew up the crux), hexes, and maybe some large nuts. Gear anchors.
