This is the right-most of the three routes that split off the start on the far right of the main wall. Four bolts of relatively easy climbing lead to a good rest before the festivities begin. From here on someone has been generous enough to adorn the bolts with Fixe cable draws! A pretty tough move starts off the hard climbing. A couple more hardish moves get you to a series of good pockets with bad feet. Save some juice for the redpoint crux up high. This route hasn't seen much action up until now, but with the fixed draws, things should change in that respect. This route is really good, albeit a little tough for the grade. FYI the ledge is OFF!!!


Furthest right route on the main wall.


4 draws to get you to the fixed draws. Biners on the chain anchors.

Highly recommend this route. Definitely harder than the C's to the left at Upper Division but much much more fun on much much better rock. Up there with some of my favorite AF pitches. Climb this!

Among the canyon's best.

The Fixe draws probably won't be up forever since the owner of the draws tends to move them once he's done sending the route. So get to sending and have fun while they're up
