Description

Pitch 1, ~30 m, 4th class: This route starts up a pitch of fourth class on the eastern side of Boulder Canyon to a ledge with a 3 bolt anchor.

Pitch 2, ~10 m, 5.5: Another 10 m of low fifth class brings you to a second ledge with a two bolt anchor.

Pitch 3, ~10 m, 5.7: Work up and right into the chimney and clip a couple manky bolts before climbing out onto the face below the crack moving up and left. This pitch ends at a new two bolt anchor.

Best to combine 2 &3. From the last anchor it is a 20 m rap to the top of the first pitch. Down climb 4th class or rap to the east.

Location

Climbs the toe of the ridge forming the eastern wall of Boulder Canyon. The third pitch crack is noticeable from the parking lot.

Protection

Bolted anchors. Large crack has about 4 rusted old bolts. There is an optional flaring .5 C4 placement at the start of the chimney. A #3 and #4 might be helpful to back up the bolts.
