Description

This is a great finger to hand crack, with good rests for gear placements. Crux begins when foot holds diminish and jamming the crack becomes critical. Then just go for it!

Location

The route is located at the bottom of the side canyon. If decending from the south rim down the prominent vegetated ramp(with some trees), continue down stream. Hop several stream boulders until you reach two ledges at the base of the route(there is a stepping stone across the stream pool). The route is on a triangularly shaped rock. It is easiest to see the climb from the north side of the canyon, which can help you better define your decent.

Protection

These BD are useful. You may want more or less depending on your comfort level. #0.5, #0.75(1-3 pcs.), #1(1-2 pcs.) and #2. There is a bolted anchor at the top with close-shuts.

You can rap to the base of the climb from a set of bolts of a face climb near the end of the south rim as you walk west. They are set over the rim, so you need to look for them over the rim. This climb a perfect splitter and is good summer shade. Apr 14, 2016
