Yup. Cass


This climbs the right side of the slab. Again, consistent and slabby. Another fun climb.


2 draws for the anchors, and several draws for the climb. (sorry, no exact #'s as my diary is incomplete)

Super fun roadside crag! A block near the top came off a couple years ago, not sure if it was trundled or just fell... It was wobbly for quite some time!

Yes, we do climb here. I think these are the two most fun moderates in the entire canyon, side by side.

Pretty greasy limestone rock at the beginning, climbing shoes kept slipping. Easy fun climb just off the road, cranked some tunes and enjoyed. Great for evening so she's all in the shade! The top 1/4 of the climb was my favorite.

I agree with Connor, it starts out super greasy and polished but it has some fun moves all the way through.

The bottom chain links are pretty worn. Worth it!
