Begin by picking a route on Balanced Rock Wall
. Then, depending on your choice of route on Balanced Rock Wall
either select a route in Box Canyon
, or gain the ridge proper immediately to the northeast of Balanced Rock
. After the pitch above Box Canyon
the route becomes a combination of short, blocky, steps mixed with the occasional "gendarme". The exposure on the upper ridge is never tremendous, but there are some high consequence areas. Top out just below where the Balanced Rock Trail Joins the East Bluff Trail.
