Description

FIRING LINE 5.9 ** 180’ F (17b)
An excellent line up the right side of the main face offering sustained varied face climbing on mostly great rock. Begin on the broad dirt covered ledge at the base and scramble up 10’ to the first headwall. From the top of the headwall follow the line of bolts first right then left then right again to the 2 chain anchors (with extra belay bolt) over the top. It is possible to rappel from the top with a single 60m rope to the chain anchors at a small ledge 70’ down about 15’ to the right of the route. There is also a set of anchors mid face if you only want to do the bottom half (but you'll miss the better upper half);
P1 – 5.9 ** 95’ (9b)
P2 – 5.9 ** 85’ (8b)

Location

Climbs right of the center of the last large face at the south end of the South Canyon. Possible to rappel the route with a single 60m rope (use mid chain anchors on "Bite The Bullet").

Protection

fixed - 17 bolts to chains on top
