Joi blowing dust off of Gordon just prior to the F...


Sure, its short, but Gordon climbs really fun and is a worthy route whether it be a warm up before headed up canyon or a less intimidating project for the aspiring 5.11 leader. This route and the one to the right are named after Gordon and Mindy - fixtures of SLC climbing achievement and often seen in Maple Canyon. Begins on some big & easy cobbles down & left of the first bolt and stays relatively sustained to the chains.


Locate the "normal" non-glue in 1st bolt in a large cobble. The other bolts on the route are glue ins. Shorter, but steeper than the routes to the left.


5 bolts, chains with steel biners
