right corner. a little short. a little greasy.


If your looking for a quick easy romp up a crag to impress your next date than this is the route for you.

Look for the easy foot holds on the right face and use the nice hand holds found on the left face. Just keep looking for the holds, they are there. If you're new to climbing this makes an impressive-looking 5.6 route that you can show all your friends. If you are more experienced then use this as a warm up to Mr Numbers or Panic City.


Top rope on second set of anchors from the west


As you look at The Kitchen from the main Rock Canyon trail the Right Corner line is exactly in the right corner. Mr Numbers (5.10d) is on the wall on the right outside face of the corner.

This seemed harder than 5.6, but maybe it was just me. Glassy, with great gear, and way too short.

Unless I missed a set, the second set of anchors has a bit of rope drag - the first set (out over Numbers) has a much better line.

The Mr. Numbers anchors do make a cleaner top rope, but then you miss the crux of the climb as you pull over the top.

I didn't feel like the top part was the crux, but a simple solution for TR'ing is to use the anchors at the top of the formation, and then redirect the rope through the Mr. Numbers anchors. If climbers want to get to the top, just unclip from the Mr. Numbers anchors when you get there and keep climbing to the next set of bolts.

I saw someone leading this, clipping the bolts on Mr. Numbers...they fell while clipping the 2nd bolt and they hit the ground. I think it must have been their first lead climb or something. Should've headed over to Red Slad, or Tinker Toys, or The Appendage instead.
