If you brought a rack (e.g. for Route Canal), this route is worth a run. Start just right of Buckets of Rain in a right-angling corner on easy terrain. Pull through the left side of a slight bulge with some loose rock, then angle right again up an awkward but fun slot. Despite the 2014 "Rock Climbing Clear Creek Canyon" guidebooks' title, I didn't think this route was lame.


It is on the far right side of Canal Zone, to the right of Buckets of Rain.


Standard rack to #2 Camalot with an optional #6 for the slot and a 2 bolt anchor with rap rings.

Even on a busy day, you are sure to have this route to yourself. The rock is horrible in many places, and the swarming bees didn't help. Perhaps good for the adventure factor, as for every place where you can trust a hold or gear placement, there are several others you can't. I cleaned it as much as I dared on a busy day, but it appears an additional few tons of rock is ready to come down. Jun 18, 2017
