Paul starting the top pitch.


The route is located on the left side (south) of Little Spotted Wolf Canyon.The crack is clean with perfect rock. Walk through SWC for about 5mins passing the chocolate striped slab ,around the corner at the other side of the slab/ridge is the fine left facing corner crack a few minutes hike up the steep talus. This route will go all free .

P1) The crack starts at about 11/2" .the first 50'or so was climbed free at 5.10 . The crack was then aided past three bolts at the roof to double anchors . 140'C1 5.10.
P2) A section of the crack was climbed free at 5.8 to the steep off-width section then aided to the top . 80' C1 5.8. Register in cairn in alcove above belay. Probably go free at 5.10+
Descent :-From the anchors two 60 meter ropes just reach the ground.


Friends Three sets from #.5 to #5 Two #6 Two 60 meter ropes
