Description 

This route is the corner directly to the left of Watusi Afterworld. Climb a slab below to the corner. The crack goes from hands to thin hands. After the crux, the crack is filled with dirt and leaves; I needed to do a bit of gardening with my nut tool to get some decent placements.

Location 

This is the corner just to the left of Watusi Afterworld. It's fairly obvious when you're standing at the base of the crag.

Protection 

Standard rack up to a #3 Camalot should get you up in style. Rappel with a 60m rope from the Watusi Afterworld anchor.

This route is not in Gillett's guidebook to the canyon. Because the upper crack was so dirty, this had the feel of a first ascent. We're not claiming one because it's a pretty obvious line. If you know the proper name and first ascent information, please post up.
