Captain Insano


Easy moves up the dihedral to the fifth clip to a cruxy move very similar to the Dirty Mouth crux. Follow the left slanting crack for nine clips of amazing jug hauling on steep terrain. Heads up! for the last bolt - its crimpy, and after 95 feet you'll be pumped. An enduro burn for sure with nothing harder than 5.11.


Right of World Leader Pretend, begin in the crack/dihedral and follow the crack system up and left.


14 clips, sport anchor

The end is a bit contrived in my opinion. Its 100 feet of jugs to one crimp from which you clip the chains. A good route, but there are not 8 clips of overhanging jugs as Huey writes.

Outstanding, fantastic! One of my favorites in the Canyon. Definitely not 12a though (maybe in the Red).

The holds on this are definitely not all jugs. Probably not even half of them are jugs! Great climb though.

I was robbed, robbed!!! Spit off on my flash attempt by the sharp little crimps up top. Looks like the anchor may have been a bolt lower previously? thought I saw a bolt hole filled next to the last bolt. Full value, one of the best pitches of the trip thus far.
