Climb fingers to tight hands until you reach a dirty ledge with Mormon Tea bushes. Scramble to an overhung pod where you can gain a good fist crack. The crack narrows from fists back to fingers before the anchors.


Traveling west from the day use area this climb is on the south side of the road just before you exit the canyon and begin climbing up toward Cactus Park. The crack ascends the middle of a slabby buttress, left of a large, left-facing dihedral by 50' or so.


Doubles from fingers to fists. Two bolt anchor with slings. There is a tree with slings ~30' right of the anchors on top of the cliff as well.

The anchors for this climb have recently been replaced and now have rap rings instead of slings.
