This "route" starts about 10 feet left of the obvious dry waterfall. The first bolt is about 10 feet up. The second bolt is just a little further. Once you reach the top of this make your way right and you will see another bolt on the floor by your feet. The last bolt is the hardest to find. It is actually above your head and to the left as you enter into the water runoff corridor. From here you will see to chains to belay from. Not much of a route, but necessary if you are going to visit the trash compactor. These chains are also ideal to rappell out of the canyon from.
