Isaac getting ready to crush.


Climb a wide crack (#4) to gain a small Large. Then head up the Indian Creek style splitter for about 30 feet.


Look for the obvious thin hands splitter going up the middle of wall. Just up the hill and left of the slackline.


Up to a #4 but you'll probably want several red camalots.

One of the classic trad lines in the canyon. Quite striking when you first come up the trail. Gotta love a crux at the end.

I place 2 #3s, a # 1 and #.75 cam. Really run out, but if you are comfy on hands its way more fun to run it out. It climbs so well, its easy to neglect placing gear. Great route.

Save a #1 and a .75 for up top. The .75 protects the crux just before the anchors, so make sure you have it.
