The route starts downhill from Rock'n and Riding by 150 feet. Start by scrambling left through some bushes to a face with a crack on the right side. Start by doing some hard moves using the crack and face to the first bolt. The route follows the bolt line from here.


12 bolts and an anchor.

I believe this is an excellent climb if you can get past standing on a few grassy footholds. The vegetation gives it a mountaineering feel, while the arete near the top anchors gives the greatest exposure/position of any sport climb at this grade in the canyon. Nice and long, use a 70m to rap.
