Description

Pitch 1 is .11a on thin edges with a belay at the top that you can pass with another few feet of climbing to the base of the next pitch. Pitch 2 is super fun, climbing a cool, steep bulge and is .11+. I thought this was the best pitch by a long shot.

Easy scrambling to the base of pitch 3, where easy .8 climbing awaits. Pitch 4 has a fantastic crux, with loads and loads of teeny edges and just less than vertical aspect. There are several ways to do this one and if you pick the right sequence you might get lucky.

Location

The route kind of sits alone with a distinctive tree (the last time I was there) at the second bolt.

Protection

Five or six longish draws with 10-12 total. All bolts and a "55-meter rope"

Awesome route. Not very often that you get to climbing 4 pitches up in AF canyon. All the steep sections have amazing holds if you can find them. Well protected the whole way and never had an issue with rope drag using standard draws. Still some loose rock every now and then but nothing large is coming off. Get on it. May 19, 2017
