This route tackles the entire roof/corner feature on the left side of the canyon. Clip the first bolt of Down the Rabbit Hole, and then pop left onto the roof-capped slab. Take care moving left to the bolt on the slab. While the feet are huge, you definitely don't want to slip here. Next, make techy moves past the bolt to a pod in the roof (be sure to have an attentive belayer). Then, pull up into to the corner, and ride it to a two-bolt anchor.


This climbs the roof-capped slab to the left of Down the Rabbit Hole and joins up with the Expensive Route corner. It ends at a two-bolt anchor to the left of the Expensive Route hand traverse.


Two bolts, a single set of cams to 3 inches, and a two-bolt anchor. You can bring optional RPs for the slab.

It would have been a lot cooler to just finish the Expensive Route.... Not sure why you decided to put an anchor in for this link-up and alter a classic route. Jan 29, 2018

Hey, Monty. I hear you. This was something we definitely thought about. We decided to install the anchors to spare the climber the pretty severe rope drag that comes with running up to the Expensive Route anchors. They're far enough to the left of the traverse that no one would ever clip them anyway. So apart from looking at them as you climb past, they don't really change anything. Shoot me a DM if you want to talk more about this. Jan 29, 2018
