A fun romp next to a seam/occasional crack with a bit of a surprise at the end.

Stem up the shallow open book on a couple of awkward sidepulls and thin holds. Find a jug or two and head upward, mostly to the left of the seam but occasionally stemming across it.

Nearing the top it's mostly thin face climbing, but at the bulge right before the chains there are a few crack-ish holds, although you may find them mildly deceptive.


Starts up the shallow, tan open book to the right of the main section of Escape. If counting from Jug for Joy (the left-most on the main section) it's the seventh from the left.


10 bolts, chain anchors.

Not your typical AF canyon Pocket pulling. My Brother and I really enjoyed this route. you alternate from crack/ lieback moves to crimps and small edges. It's a long route but not overhung so you can get plenty of no hands rests. I found the funnest moves were getting to the first bolt and between the last bolt and chains. Still a newish route so watch out for loose holds. Fun Route!

Great full body warm-up and harder than 5.10a in many sections you damn sandbaggers.
