Description

Originally conceptualized as two pitches, Negative 29 is best done as one rope-stretching pitch, climbing through one of the largest scoops in the canyon!

Dry start on the isolated, small rocky “beach” and venture up the excellent dark-grey stone. Put your skills to the test on side-pulls, smears, crimpers, mantle-ish moves, and more. A rest ledge that hosts the anchors follows (anchors are a couple feet to the left). The climb to this point is reportedly 5.11+, but should be done to warm-up for what follows: the SCOOP!

Get your stem on to surf the progressively overhanging crack and impeccably smooth desert varnish to sequences on sinker-pockets. Unfortunately, choss guards the chains, reminding you that you’re not actually in Heaven.

Protection

One FULL 60 meter rope and about a 12-14 draws. Chains at the top.

Isn't this route actually way right of the James Brown Wall? May 15, 2017
Awesome climbing on this one! Wild and exciting moves exiting the scoop and keeping it together to the anchor. One of my most exciting on sites in the canyon. It wouldnt break my heart if the anchor was 10 ft lower... 5.12 Jun 11, 2012

Anyone know whats up with the two bolts a few inches apart high up on the route? Was it going to be a lower anchor? I think the route would benefit from having the anchor there as the rock quality becomes bad above these two bolts. Jun 11, 2012
