  • Description 

    Argus starts about 10 feet left of Gyro Captain.

    One star climb, zero star setting. Argus involves climbing the boulder problem Caddis and then continuing up some 5.11 climbing to the anchors. A 6 move wonder. Most people don't rope up for this and just climb Caddis, which officially ends on the escape ledge about 25 feet up, though it's common to jump off after the crux. But, if you want to make it safe and finish at the top of the cliff, then Argus is your route. Even though it's fairly sharp and close to the road, it's got some fun, hard moves and makes for a convenient project.

    Protection 

    5-6 bolts to a two bolt anchor.
