Start below the dihedral. Either climb the corner up or climb up the face to the right on jugs to a good stance to get into the dihedral. Place about a #0.5 BD cam size piece in the crack, finger lock and throw up to a jug on the face to mantel onto the ledge. I thought this was the crux.

Climb easier rock to the rest of the dihedral. Finger locks or liebacking with a few hand jam pods get you to a large ledge with a 2 bolt anchor and some slings.


This route is a couple of routes to the right of Rednekk Justice. It is the obvious, chalked up dihedral.


Small - medium sized cams, 2-3 finger-sized piece (small purple BD cam), hand-sized piece for up higher.


Does the top 3rd of this route finish with a sandy flake? Trying to figure out which one this is. Feb 23, 2010

Yeah, me too. Been a while since I have been in that area and can't remember the order of the routes. Feb 24, 2010

If this is .11, then Rednekk is 12+. Mar 8, 2010

Some guys from Gunny said that this was .9, and comparing this to the other routes I've climbed in the area, I have to agree with them, throw in a plus for a few punchy moves. I kinda got served on this route, and it's probably going to be harder than most .9+s at other areas, at the Creek it probably would be .11, but it's not an Escalante .11. Fun adventurous climbing though. Mar 11, 2010

Wasn't trying to criticize your rating so much, just trying to say that Rednekk is (in my opinion) much harder than this route. Ratings are subjective as always and everyone has the right to rate a route however they see fit. Mar 12, 2010

If I remember correctly, a semi-famous MP climber who 'onsights 5.12 trad' fell and pulled some gear on this one. I've done this one a couple times and always find it awkward. Apr 1, 2010

Awkward is a good term. As a heads up, rock halfway up and for the last 10 feet is very sandy and soft. Rope friction is rapidly degrading these sections. Climbers looking for Escalante "moderates" may use some caution. Apr 16, 2012

100% 5.9+. That means it is certainly harder than 5.9. Mar 18, 2013

Calling this 5.9 will get some one hurt. It was harder than many a 5.10a in Escalante, and it has sandy slippery and manky rock up top. In fact, I would say it is harder than the opening moves to S Crack. Apr 11, 2013
I'd say >5'10", it's 5.10- throwing up to the jug from the roof and thin jams/fingers. If <5'10", the throw is extremely reachy. Wound up doing a strenuous lieback, perhaps 5.10+. Apr 23, 2017
