Maybe it's cleaner now, but it was terrible when we did it. Belay with extreme caution. Hard to notice how good the climbing was when I was worried about even the bolts holding in the wall or killing my belayer.

We stumbled across this route in 2008 when we were wandering through the canyon. No idea who put it up, but it felt like 5.8 or 5.9 if I remember right. I definitely don't think it was 5.11+. As far as I know, this was the first route in the canyon.

I remember dislodging a really big cobble when I was climbing and it fell down, ricocheted off the slope at the angled bottom of the route, and nailed the third guy in our party right in the babymaker. Ah... Good times climbing on loose cobbles. Wear those helmets, and uh, maybe bring a cup.
