Access Issue: Climbing Access Open - Keep a low profile. Details


Another great canyon climb. The rock quality of this route is superb. (until the very top at least). The crack ranges from big hands to off width and is an excellent test piece for a variety of crack climbing skills.

Access the lower ramp by either climbing straight up the leftmost crack, or start on the right and traverse over. Continue up the crack in the dihedral to the top. At the top, either top out by climbing the choss straight up, or traverse right.

Perhaps the best option would be to pre-rig an anchor by throwing some webbing over the huge block so that you could avoid topping out.
Another anchor option is to use the tree located far right of the climb. This works, though the follower would experience quite a swing.


Once you reach the crag, take a right. This is the obvious left dihedral chimney around the corner from the old aid route.


Big cams to #5 Doubles sew it up nicely.
Big Hexes.
40' of static for the anchor.

Soloed this route back in October in approach shoes and am subsequently downgrading it to 5.7. For the style, it's far from 5.9. Solid jams the whole way and a slightly insecure finish. Apr 4, 2018
