Description

7 pitches of tightly bolted face and crack (yes, I said tightly bolted CRACK) right up the middle of the obvious rocketship-looking formation in the center of Fifth Canyon. This route features some excellent climbing for those in search of a low stress, fun day in the front country.

Location

Bolt line straight up the center of the formation. Rap to descend.

Approach up Fifth Canyon takes 1.5-2 hours depending on how close you can park.

Protection

14+ draws and slings for bolts and bolted anchors. Single 70M rope to rappel the route.
