One of my favorite 5.9s in the canyon! Some bigger moves but great holds to go with them. There is a slight crux at the 5th bolt, but besides that, it is a total cruiser and a blast!


Around the corner from The Goblin, 2nd climb you will see while on the trail.

Cleaning this one was quite the feat. Chad accidentally pulled a boulder off of the top with a cam and fell onto some webbing that Jared and I were attached to. Either way, I can't wait to come back here and see how she looks. Mar 4, 2015

Loved this climb! Plenty of shade with the position and all the trees, hidden from the road, and a nice stream near by; definitely worth paying a visit. Oct 25, 2013

Easily one of the best 5.9s I've ever climbed. Don't miss it! Lots of garbage and broken bottles at the base of these climbs. Please keep it clean! Jun 26, 2013

Right off the ground this is an amazing 9. Huge side pull flakes, pinches, and arm spreader moves that test your ape index. Yep possibly the best 9 in the world! Jun 18, 2011
