Description:

2 pitches but can be done in one with a 70 m rope. Located on the landing at the far right. Crux is at the bottom. Top out twice at the top. Use slings or two rope rap from the top, lots of sharp edges otherwise. Be careful of loose rock!

2 out of 5 stars not my favorite

crux feels exposed. didnt really feel too stimulated by the rest of the climb after that. good view but you might as well climb serotonin instead for about the same view.

5 out of 5 stars Great view

Great 5.9, one of the best views of the canyon from the top. Lots of loose rock.

5 out of 5 stars Fun Climb

This Climb Rocks. The Crux is fairly low. Easy Climbing from there. Watch out, a few loose rock on the way. We climbed with three people and top belayed the second and third. A good climb to practice Big wall techniqes. There is plenty of room on the top ledge for four peoiple. Bring long slings for clipping in at the top.

4 out of 5 stars none

Good route with a trickey start. You can climb past the chains and clip 3 or 4 more bolts and get to another set of chains for a more exposed finish. Rapp with 2 ropes, or to the first set of chains then to the ground with 1 rope. Watch for loose rock.
