Description 

The crux is high. It was dirty, but reports now indicate it has cleaned up considerably. Lots of pockets and interesting sequential moves.

Location 

This is the first route located on the right as you enter the Narrows of South Willow Canyon. Go up and under a huge hanging cottonwood stump to wall with a huge cave at its base. IN MY HEEL traverses across the top of the cave to the first bolt and continues up past others to the chains. This is the first sizeable piece of rock as one enters the narrows on the right side of the road going up canyon. It has seen many repeats from the local crowd over the years, but is being reported now for the first time.

Protection 

QDs to a two bolt belay. Drilled on lead with a Ryobi from hooks and gear. Has cleaned up alot since the time of the FA.

Hey James, what's the deal with this limestone. It looks like a crushed conglomerate or something. Cool the way those pockets are lined with the crystals. I didn't climb this but wonder how much its cleaned up.

As of last week, it needs to be cleaned up very badly. This would be a great route if there wasn't SO MUCH loose rock. Definitely wear a helmet.

Hopped on this route last weekend. An impressive looking clif. Super tall. I wonder what it would take to make the routes go all the way to the top. The clif is still crumbly. We had stuff raining down on us the whole time. Needs to be climbed more and then it will be a great enduro pump fest. Wear helmets and don't stand right below the climber.
