Description:

-At the top of the slab, and to the far right starts a two pitch climb. Route begins in the small chimmney and climbs the slab just to the left of the dihedral. First pitch has 6 bolts, several quite hidden. About midway up you can place a small cam, continue up to a sweet belayers ledge which has 2 bolts and a cable. First Pitch is 5.6 Second pitch follows the slab up and to the right and is 5.7 A really fun climb with an awesome view.

4 out of 5 stars Good Rock For Cheyenne Canyon

This a nice climb for Cheyenne Canyon, probably one of the best in my opinion. I guided it with a client. We both had some trouble at the top. Me because of the lack of nearby spots to build an anchor and them because their shoes were too tight and there feet hurt. The rock is some of the best and the movement is pretty relaxed and fun.

5 out of 5 stars some moss growth

First pitch is very run out if you miss the first 2 bolts. little bit of moss growing on the first pitch. Fun climb! Simal climbed cause we only had one rope for 3 people.
