Chaos at the belay!


The route starts off a little tricky in soft rock. About a 15’ segment before getting in to solid Sandstone. Small nuts worked well for protection through this section.

The Route follows a great line and will test all your crack climbing skills. The first pitch is mostly hands and off hands. The climbing is about 5.9. A top of pitch one is a hanging belay.
Pitch two is exciting and super exposed, starting off with fingers, to hands, to off fingers, and then things get wide. A short offwidth to a chimney takes you to a set of anchors. Off fingers and tricky smearing will get you through the crux.

Two 60M cords will get you down.


The Route is 2 miles up Cottonwood Wash (UTM 12 S 545743 4326435) You will see a noticeable prow on the South side of the canyon.


Pitch one is 2"-4"pieces and a few small nuts. Pitch two is master cams #1-#3, small nuts and 2"-5" pieces. There are fixed anchors on each pitch.
