BETA PHOTO: The Baptism in the Sanctuary


The obvious left-facing corner on the east side (west-facing)of the Sanctuary. Step off the ground and place a tips piece t protect the start, then launch into an ever-widening perfect-cut layback crack to nice handjams above. Pull the steep lip around a changing corner, up an easier ramp, then finish up a wide crack to the top.


East side of the canyon, center of the wall, beautiful looking corner system.


single rack from tips to #6 Camalot. Maybe an extra #3.
Currently no bolted anchor, either leave tat ont eh tree right at the top of the crack, and rap off, or do a short walk off back to packs. Will equip in future.
