This climb is located more or less above the top-rope wall, to the south of the Chief and Squaw Wall.

Go past two bolts up a steep face (listed as 5.9, but this felt considerably harder, easily 5.10+ for short people), continue into an easy crack system, this is followed by another bolt and tricky face climbing into a right-facing dihedral to the anchors.

This thing is straight out of The Garden in terms of style. It is quite scary getting to the first bolt; 40 feet from the belay ledge, culminating in a tricky mantle onto a crumbling, hollow shelf before the first bolt can be clipped. A fall here would be brutal, tumbling all the way back to or past the belay ledge, hence the R rating. The crack system is covered in rat shit. The last moves to the anchor are tricky as well, and not all that easy to protect.

All in all, this is a fun climb; it is out of character for the canyon. It has good exposure. It doesn't see much traffic.


This climb lies on the Chief, south of the main Squaw Wall.


3 bolts, 2 bolt anchor, 1/2" to 3" pro.

I'm going back and forth on the R rating. If the first bolt could be clipped without having to commit to the crumbling shelf, it wouldn't even warrant PG-13. On the flip side, I broke two large parts of that shelf off before I went for it; and all it'd take is a broken hold here to send you tumbling a long, long way.
