Raptor Closures - 2016 Tunnel 2 Closure Lifted / Upper Canyon Road closures MORE INFO >>>

Description 

An awkward start leads to fun, jug hauling. This route and Pound Town (to the right, and closer to the water) converge at the 3rd bolt. Unlike Pound Town that needs a stick clip, you can just stand and clip the first bolt to avoid a tumble into the creek.

The 3rd and 4th bolts along with the anchors are shared with Pound Town.

Location 

This is the left one of the two lowest routes down by the water at Low Wire. As the guidebook shows a picture from across the creek, this and Pound Town are technically the two farthest right routes in the Low Wire area, even though they are all the way down by the water.

Head down the fixed line to a nice staging area, then scramble down to another staging area just below and closer to the water. (If you are looking up the fixed line, this area is down to the right by the water.)

Protection 

4 bolts.
