Access Issue: Fragile Sandstone: Don't Climb Wet Rock Details
Kelly Canyon is a sandstone climbing area and the rock is very fragile when wet. Be aware of recent weather and ask a local if you are unsure of conditions. Do not climb for at least a day following rainfall. Do not climb on rock that is visibly moist or seeping.
A true Kelly canyon route. It's big. It's got commitment and it has every kind of hold Kelly has to offer. The line follows the left side of the roof. Start on crimps at about eye level. Make your way up to the jug slots under the roof. From here look for a small patina crumpled for the left hand and a pocket/undercling for the right. Next move to the large sloper. Keep moving up staying under the roof till your on the crescent crimp. From here pull out onto the face and up the last few holds to the top. Unlike a lot of Kelly's top outs this one is easy.
