Very commiting crux right off the deck between the two bolts. First bolt is too low to prevent ground fall because of the large boulder in the canyon. The crack system above gobbles up gear and makes for a very enjoyable climb on solid rock.

Descent Options:

Walk off to right or use rap anchors on adjacent climb.

4 out of 5 stars Student becomes teacher

This was a break through climb for me... My husband, who taught me how to climb, was very uncomfortable trying to make the crux move because of the ground fall potential. He finally gave up and in his frustration suggested I lead it. My initial response was, "I don't lead 5.10 trad..." But I just had this feeling I could do the move, and everything above it looked pretty tame. So I took the rack and jumped on. I climbed up to the crux and back down twice, and after declaring that I was really scared, pushed through and clipped the 2nd bolt. It was all fun and games after that. The best part was how proud and honestly happy for me my husband was.
