This route surprisingly climbs better than it initially looks. Begin the climb 30 feet right of Spinal Tap.

Please keep in mind a 70m rope will NOT reach the ground from the upper anchor. Taller folks might find this route a bit easier, 5.9-5.9+. Also note, there may still be some loose rock/dirt (I did however spend quite a few hours cleaning the route).

Pitch 1 – 5. 8 – Climb up a large boulder, and clip the somewhat high first bolt (easy 5th). Climb on moderate terrain to a small roof which leads to an excellent belay ledge, 11 bolts + a 2 bolt anchor, ~85 feet.

Pitch 2 – 5.10a – From the ledge, ascend a short overhang (crux) which leads to another, easier overhang. The second pitch anchor is located on another decent ledge, 6 bolts + a 2 bolt anchor, ~45 feet.

Rappel the route.

The first pitch is one of the best pitches of 5.8 I have climbed in the canyon.

The 5.9+/10a second pitch is ok and worth doing if you want to get high. Mar 17, 2018

A great steep first pitch leads to some fun overhangs on the second pitch. Both belay ledges are comfy, and the road noise is all but non-existent. I never felt the rock was chossy, and if you stay true to the bolt line, it's solid jugs to the top. Great warm-up for the area, too! Do this route on a weekend! Apr 3, 2018
