Climb the layback crack in the middle of the slabby face. Pick your way up cool features and pockets to reach the corner system. Discover the giant hidden flake and breathe a sigh of relief that you won't be stemming the blank looking corner. Paw your way up this brilliant feature to the anchor below the roof. 100+' feet long. It will use every inch of your 60m rope --> tie a knot in the other end of your rope before lowering!


Begins up on the dirt pedestal just left of the main corner system. Go up the lie back finger crack.


15 bolts to cold shuts

This line is sick!!! Saw it while doing the other routes in the area, and was very curious. Didn't have any info on the route, but it looked too good to pass up. It was unclear how positive the flake would be from the ground. It ended up being wrap around jugs the whole way up the flake! The 'approach' slab was also really fun. LONG route, but I just barely made it down with a 60 meter rope. Tie a knot in the end of your rope!!

Amazing line, pretty much as fun and awesome as big bear memorial.

Felt 10a/b the crack flake up top is huge, feet are bomb whole way.

Along with Big Bear Memorial and Thor one this climb is one of the best easy 10s in the canyon.

This route has 17 bolts plus the chains. Someone must have added a few more. I skipped a few, but I wouldn't want anyone to have to run out the last two because they only brought 15 draws.
