Start on the far left side of the slab. Climb the steep scoop to gain the slab and then step up left into the clean, orange corner....


Gear from thin to 1". There is a 2-bolt anchor with chains at the top.

First half is just a scramble, but the second half is quite fun and protects well. Aug 15, 2017

This is a 5.8+ or 5.9- route. We found it to be sandbagged because of the crux moves needed. Leading, my boyfriend had difficulty placing gear at the top, and he's a solid 5.10 climber. Beginners would not like the top of this route, and it would be wise to change the rating for other climbers. It took us a LONG time, because I had a lot of difficulty with the crux. I am a solid 5.8 climber, so felt the 5.8+ or 5.9- was an appropriate rating due to the crux. The first 2/3 of the climb is 5.7 but not the top. Great moves in the beginning and solid crag otherwise. 5.7 to the right was more true to rating. Jun 1, 2016

Great little pitch! However, it's not in the current Arkansas Valley guidebook. Aug 9, 2014
