One of the most trafficked climbs in the canyon, among the few 10's on the buttress. Climb blocky start to high first bolt, and then up through white crystally rock. Careful of the greasy holds below the first bolt.


This route is right at the end of the approach trail, the first route that you will come to. Look for the large section of white rock.


quickdraws, chain anchors

Did a 2nd pitch on this after noticing there were chain anchors at the top. It's mostly a long hand crack and theoretically could be a good route, but it's quite dirty - lots of lichens and a bit of loose rock.
Probably goes around 5.8+; there are no bolts between the 2 belays.

If you do this thing in the summer, be ready for climbing amongst the wasps! They tend to infest the top of this route from June through September. Really fun, classic Kootenai line, though.
