Start off up an easy slab and then crimp your way up a gently overhanging face. A fun route that boils down to two one-move boulder problems in the V5-7 range: both involve long moves off of small holds. You do 12a/b climbing up to the first crux, get an excellent rest, fire the second crux, and then cruise to the top.

If I recall correctly, the whole thing is less than 20 moves, but it's action-packed.

Nothing to write home about, but if you've got strong fingers and weak endurance, it's probably worth your attention. Climbs much better than it looks.


The route is on the southern face of the eastern most Canine. Aptly named.


4 bolts -- bring four quickdraws. Currently, the anchors are too far behind the cliff to lower off, so you'll want to top the rig out and walk off the backside. Baker promises to fix new anchors soon, though, so your mileage may vary.


Chain anchor for lowering was installed this morning by Jake Croft. Apr 3, 2014
Ian, I gave it one star so we would average out to 1.5, which is about right. FA is Mike Head. Mar 31, 2011
