Probably my favorite route in the canyon. After following the trail to the base, follow the cliff left to the Fairytale Wall and a large overhang. There is a good crack in the corner leading to a traverse protected by three 1/4 in bolts. Climb straight up the crack until it becomes overhanging. Then traverse left protected by three old 1/4 leeper hangers (crux). Be sure to make a BOMBER anchor before clipping the first bolt as they should not be expected to do much more than make you feel better. The middle one is a spinner fyi. Make your way up to the top and belay off of the trees via a ton of webbing.

Descent Options:

Walk down an easy gully to the base of the cliff

4 out of 5 stars My Favorite Route!!

Found this one on a scouting trip with Ben. Great route. Crux is the bolted traverse.
