This route takes the fairly obvious, thin-hands crack through a bulge that's to the left of Watusi Afterworld.

Start by climbing an easy, vegetated trough below the crack (or the slab to the right), get to a stance at the crack, fire the crack, and mantel when it ends.


To the left of Watusi Afterworld is a corner leading to a dirty crack. This route is to the left of that corner. It's very obvious from the base of the crag. Rappel from the anchor of Watusi Afterworld. A 60m rope is sufficient for the rappel.


Standard rack. A single set of cams and stoppers should work just fine. A larger piece (#4 or #5 Camalot) may ease your mind when finishing the mantel. Head up and right to the anchors atop Watusi Afterworld (or one could probably top out and descend maybe climber's left).

This route is not in Gillett's guidebook to the canyon. I can't imagine we did a first ascent since the line is so obvious. If you know the proper name of this route or who put it up, please post up the info. Apr 6, 2013
