Pulling the bulge on Flame thrower


Climb a technical and interesting slab up to the base of the large roof. Sack up, pull the roof, and keep it together going to the anchors.

An awesome pitch! The steepest climb in the canyon.


The third route from the entrance, marked by the obvious bolted roof feature.


bolts + mussy's.

Now it's the third route on the left. Awesome must do route!

Very well-bolted. The face climbing below the roof is actually much better than it looks from the ground. The roof holds are big, don't be intimidated.

Incredible face climbing below the roof. Only about 5.10b/c until there. Roof is awesome climbing but coming from the Red River Gorge it felt more like 5.11b rather than 11+. There is an awesome hand jam right when you start to think there isn't another jug.

There are also jugs up and left, you don't have to use that jam, unless you need to change your grip for longevity purposes.

Also not the steepest climb in the canyon, go up further to the trailer park or even further to the big steep ass Tsunami looking thing on the right side up high. Or for short and steep across the creek to the sunny side known as the far side.

Now a mussy hooks anchor below the roof for those who want to stop there.

Climbed it to the first anchors--a very nice, thin 10c if you aren't up for the big roof, which looks awesome, in the true meaning of that word.
