A tricky lieback start with pretty thin feet will get you to a blocky stance. Follow the long gray groove on really good holds and steepening rock to a right-trending short crack. This tricky crux section with edges and an out-of-sight great jug just above C7 will move you left through this section with a bit of run to C9. Continue with easier climbing to a ledge at C10. Climb straight up past 1 clip to the hard-to-clip anchors.


Kubrick's left, hike along the wall upstream/uphill past Lady Lyndon. At the top to the trail, Jack Torrance is the third route.

11 clips to ring anchors.

Any new 5.10s in the canyon are welcome. This one is a bit dirty. It also has surprisingly awkward movement.

Needs some traffic - really dirty and a lot of loose rock.

I didn't experience any loose rock, but it was a bit dirty. Definitely worth doing and a fun climb. The rock is pretty bomber, but some have a bit of dirt and dust on it.
