Description 

This is the first route put up in the canyon.

P1 (5.6, 120'). Start up the face directly next to the dead tree, and make your way up the broken and loose crack system occasionally bumping a few feet right or left to stay on solid terrain. After 100', follow the crack as it eases off and angles left. The top of pitch 1 is an incredible mini-ledge on top of the arete you've been climbing next to.

P2 (5.7, 20'). From the small ledge, head right and then up to the overhang. Pull past the overhang which is easier than it looks, and stand tall at the summit.

From the summit, head right and uphill slightly before descending down into the gully.

Location 

This is the right side of Apple Cider Wall and uphill maybe 100 yards. It's right next to the third dead tree that is still standing next to the wall.

Protection 

A lot of loose rock existed on the first ascent. We managed to clean up a descent amount of the route, but there remains a lot of loose rock still. Bring a standard rack, though I used the smaller pieces more (#.3-#1).
