Description:

To the left of Betagraphic, follows arete. One of the Canyon's best 5.9s, with a fun roof pull at the very top (don't cheat by going around!). There is some loose rock on this one.

2 out of 5 stars Saucy 5.9

Not sure if this really is 5.9. Roof is kind of tough and heady. A bunch of folks go around left which is way easier but pretty run out (still 5.9?). Yes, there is loose rock too but that is Logan.

3 out of 5 stars Weird Climb

Weird kind of pumpy climb. I didn't see the last bolt around the corner and stayed left to pull the roof and run it out to the shuts. Someone mentioned to me that I skipped the 10a crux by staying left.
