Tyler checking out the final boulder problem.

Description 

Thought-provoking face climbing leads to a cave near the top that you can climb into and rest before the boulder problem that guards the chains. Be prepared to wait in line for this canyon classic when the parking lot is full.

Location 

This is the second route on the Gray Wall and begins just past the seepage creek that separates it from Jungle Gym.

Protection 

8 bolts, 2 anchors
