Description:

4 pitch climb (with the 4th pitch being "trad") The first pitch is on the edge of a large arch and is very fun to climb. The second pitch is more committing and extends above the arch onto the face with thin holds and lots of exposure. One of the best climbs in the canyon. The 3rd and 4th pitches are not done very often.

4 out of 5 stars Living on the Edge

With Joe. After many times on the 1st pitch and at least one other on the 2nd, finally got the whole thing in. A classic according to Climbing Magazine. Hope folks expectations of our rock in Snow Canyon are in line when they start up the 2nd pitch!
