Description [Suggest Change]

A 2 pitch scramble to the top of the center part of the head.

Pitch 1- 4th class- Scramble up notch/chimney at the back of Boulder Canyon. Ends at two bolt belay. (Note- there are two pairs of bolts; questionable old bolts covered in glue on the left, and a pair of bomber glue ins on the right. I didn't notice the glue ins until after I had belayed off the crappy bolts.)

Pitch 2- 5.0- Continue up left face on several bolts and loose rock. Ends at two bolt belay. They appear to be old drop in anchors that were later covered over with some sort of glue/epoxy.

Descent- Most direct descent is to rap the route. Neither anchor is set up with rap hardware, but the glue ins could be threaded through directly. Bring some tat for the top.

Alternative descent would be to walk down to the Ridge Route rappel. Lots of loose 3rd/4th to get there.

Location [Suggest Change]

Starts in the notch in the back (south) end of Boulder Canyon. See Marty map for exact location.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Draws for the top, probably don't need more that 6 but I forgot to count the bolts. The first pitch might take some gear but is 4th class.
