This is a so-so route with one little hard move down low. It is mainly a decent place to hang out in some shade, have fun, and climb these 2 moderate lines with inexperienced or out of shape friends.


This is the right of two routes (with Buffalo Chips) on the slab to climber's left and around the buttress from Delusions of Grandeur. They are kind of hidden by a tree until you have walked slightly further up-canyon.

The old angle hangers were replaced with modern hardware (bolts were good, 1 needed replacement) as part of the 2014 Penitente project weekend. Shared anchor with Buffalo Chips was also replaced.
