Description 

This is the easiest and shortest bolted climb in the canyon. Due to the fact that the clips are close together and are made off of good holds, this climb makes for a good first lead. It is also a good option for the kids and those who may be afraid of heights. There is also a variation to this climb by avoiding the large corner holds and using only the face holds. Doing so bumps the rating up to maybe a 5.8

Location

An ok, but super short route. Stay left for more fun, or right for easier climbing.

Protection Detail: Three bolts and two even chains for anchor. Two body lengths to first bolt with a single body length between remaining bolts and anchors.

This climb seems to be more of a 5.5 climb. I don't even think there is even a 5.5 move or 5.6 move to be honest. Super short.
