This has been bolted later then the two other climbs on the crag. It's got some fun moves at the bottom that pull around a small roof. It's pretty reachy till you pull around the roof. You can go over the roof which would make for a much harder climb or you can pull around it for the 5.9 rating. From there it's gets a little balancey and thinner. Fun but short climb....[more] Browse More Classics in UT

Whoever has been bolting in this canyon, would you please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org). I do not want to impede on "staked territory" but am interested in a piece of rock and would like to talk before I proceed.

I have been bolting and free soloing this canyon since 2000, though I started [originally] with rebar (on what's apparently called butt crack buttress) as my resources were limited as a teen, and my climbing wasn't supported by my parents, I was lucky enough to have rope...rebar was the easiest thing for me to get. I have tried using as few permanent anchors as possible, though that wasn't feasible in all cases.
I love this canyon and all it has to offer. Farmington canyon will always be one of the most important parts of my history.

Wear your climbing pants for this rock, it can cut you up a little. Two guys climbing it as we came up both left blood on the rocks, and my partner did too. I always wear pants, so I left unscathed, except for a scraped up knuckle.
