Crawdad Canyon is private property. MORE INFO >>>


Starts on Y for first bolt, then moves to a crack. An overhanging hand traverse leads to pockets to top. A must do for the area!


Between Hard Cranking Dude and Veyo Quickie.


Five bolts to rap anchors.

Great climb! Go do it! Worth the $8 just for this. :)

A couple of nice heel hooks on the bottom section make this climb really fun.

Many of the anchors in crawdad are "sport" anchors where you don't need to bring extra draws. These anchors are not like that, they are regular heavy-duty bolts. They both spin as well. The rock seems solid, there is a nice stance at the top to rig the anchor for rappel, but it was a bit unnerving that both of the bolts spun.

A fun challenging route with a wicked pump. Rap Hangers at the anchor appear safe. I usually climb this good route whenever I visit the Rubicon wall at Veyo.
