This is a fun romp up some steep jugs. It looks more intimidating from the ground than it really is. I would also say it is higher quality than the guide suggests, despite having a few dirty sections.

Ape swing your way up some big flake and jug features until you reach the dubious iron oxide solution hole. Crux, figure out how to get past the solution hole and onto the flake feature above. Getting onto the flake is funky, but fun. Get a good stance for the last bolt, then move up the last flake and make a bit of a reach to get the anchors.


This is the furthest right most route on the left section of the wall. If you are standing at the Tecumseh's arete, it will be directly left of you. You should notice big flake like features with a big fist size solution hole in the middle. A 60m will get you down.


QD's for 6 bolts to a two bolt anchor.

One of my favorite climbs! An interesting crux sequence to a chaise lounge rest! One more tricky sequence to the chains. I highly recommend, the route follows a very clean line on good holds and the backdrop of Shawnee Shelter is supremely scenic! Had the whole amphitheater to myself. Makes you feel real small.

When I climbed this in October bolts were in really good shape except for some paint that has worn off. They are structurally sound. Might want to bring two long slings for this route to reduce drag. Great route! Dec 20, 2016
this route is ridiculously awesome. creative climbing to awesome ledges. a little spider webby but i think that's due to the fact it isn't in the guidebooks. super fun. and climb it in the rain for a more dramatic scenic view May 11, 2016
