The start of True Spirit of Keyhole.


From the wash, follow the end of a fin of rock past a bolt down low. After about 50' you can step onto the left face and follow cracks and ledges to the top of the fin. Descend climbers left on ledges until around the north end of Maximum Impact Wall and back to the wash.


On the left side of the wash, left of a small gully just before the Second waterfall.


One bolt, nuts and cams up to 2".

We put this up on a fine 110* summer day when the rock was too hot to touch but was mitigated by our large ice chest of beer and water that we hiked up. And by keeping the belayer in the shade.

Fun and adventurous climb, but beware: the rock was crumbling from midway up to the top of the route and there's potential to pull off large pieces if you don't climb carefully.
