Originally climbed as lower part of 'Slow Turning' these moderate pitches offer a variety of terrain as you climb up through a tight rock chimney. Depending upon conditions, I was told this route usually is quite wet but perhaps technique can offer up options (I remained relatively dry). Very fun ATC (all terrain climb) in both approach & climb. Considered to be one of the "easiest" approaches in the valley by comparison...heheh
Small non-descript pullouts beginning at 1.6-1.8 mi. from Ishawooa Mesa Trailhead. Park off road. Climb is in drainage canyon 'Slow Turning'.
Typical screws, bolts at top. Rap will require 2 ropes.

Hi Pablo, If you didn't get to the hangers then you missed the final P. I did this climb but note photo was taken by Aaron & posted with permission. I asked him about the angle and confirmed route, his was better than mine and so chosen. Maybe climb it again & you'll see, Have fun ~k

The photo of Kenny definitely isn't on Stringer... unless there's a different stringer climb in the valley. This climb, at least when I climbed it, was definitely thin the entire way. The widest part to climb was maybe 15 feet wide. Great climb though!
Once you get to the anchors there's a bunch of fun easy climbing farther up. Pretty fun just to screw around on.
