One of my favorite lines in the canyon. It can share the same anchor with Monkey Business. Stays in the shade essentially all year long. Rap hangers at the top are still solid but do spin a little. I consider it 10+ in difficulty. Mar 2, 2013

This climb is labeled at the bottom as 5.11 b/c. In the Goss guidebook, there is a note that says "if climbed as a crack climb it is 5.9 or so."

I'd call it 5.10a. I can't figure out how/why you'd want to try to climb this without using the holds in the crack.

The anchors are quite a ways to the right of the bottom of the climb and are not visible from the bottom, making it difficult to top rope. But I found that you can leave the last draw clipped or use it as a 'tram' and it works ok. It is such a cool climb that we wanted to rig it so those in our party who couldn't lead, would be able to climb it as well. May 7, 2012
