Hanging just below the awkward move to the chains

Crawdad Canyon is private property. MORE INFO >>>


Hopscotch is a fitting name as the crux requires an intricate smearing footwork sequence. This route requires some demanding jams and technique to complete. Pulling over the roof at the top is stiff, until you figure out a sequence that works for you. I have seen 'good' climbers drop F-bombs like WWII after climbing the entire route only to fall a few feet from the anchors above the roof.


This route traverses left at the small roof and follows the crack system up to an imposing roof (excellent photo-op from someone hanging on the routes adjacent to the left).


Six bolts to the anchors.

Bolted crack...ethics?

More like 5.11 no move is too hard, pulling the roof is the crux.

Fun and challenging route. Definetely more difficult on a swarmy hot July day. The canyon and resort is privately owned. We are lucky to be able to climb here at all.

This is a hard climb. Dudes who climb this and say it's easy are understating their own awesomeness. The description is apt -- the sequences are tricky, specific and demanding pretty much throughout the climb. I felt like pulling the roof was the easiest part because the holds up there are pretty big. A heel hook to grab that big flake is obvious, but moving off the flake is super hard!
