When I saw the route's name was the same as the title of the Guide Book that brought us to this canyon, we had to do it.

For the grade and the area its a classic. Sustained moderate face climbing with great feet for the first section with the use of the crack on your left. At the bush in the middle a large crack heads up to the right but to stay on route you need to head left and up.

The crack and di-hedral it follows to the left has a few loose spots so watch what you pull on.


Find it half way up the Ponderosa Wall between Come Full Circle and in The Shadow of Giants. It follows a large crack and blocky formation to its left.


12 bolts to chains.
