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.


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