About 10-15 minutes into the canyon on the North wall, you will see 2 sets of two bolted lines the one on the left is facing east, and the one on the right is facing west, with a third line right on the arete. This route (along with it's sister, Damned If You Don't) are around the corner from the two on the left. They climb the varnished edgy steep face, to the top. This is the left line.


No gear, just one bolt anchor left. A couple of cams helped me rig a safe anchor with a cordalette.

There are anchors for both of these climbs now. You can easily get to them for top-roping. This is a great pair of climbs to do with kids.
