Start in crack (Too Many Chiefs), then cross over left onto face as sport route. Great rock, fun route!


Same start as Too Many Chiefs. Just a few feet left of Kansas City Chiefs. Goes out of obvious large trad crack of Too Many Chiefs and up the face.


6 bolts. Anchors on top.

Not sure where the 5.7 rating comes from. Using the arête, it felt like 5.5. Climbing the face the whole way felt more like 5.9+.
Nice view on top.

I'd say this is on par with a similar 5.7 that I climbed in Rock Canyon. Fun cool-down climb for the end of the day or whatever! This area is just so cool I can't talk badly about any of the routes (yet, it's all still new to me). Kind of just goes up to go up at the end tho. Fun topout moves make up for this triviality.
