This route is on the left side (west) of the canyon, directly across from the arch. Put up by Ron Olevsky, this route offers some of the best "traditional" climbing in Snow Canyon. Climb past the nail scared lieback (tight finger) to a chain anchor. The second pitch climbs a dihedral to a ledge. Walk left across the ledge to an anchor. I believe there is a third pitch to this route, yet I haven't climbed it to make sure. Have two ropes to drop the exposed rappel.

5 out of 5 stars Trouble No More

This is the best trad route in Snow Canyon. The first pitch stems up twin cracks with small, but good pro to a comfortable ledge with a fixed station. The second pitch is an Indian Creek quality corner of mostly C4#.75-1's. You will not get a #2 in until the top. Climb out to the ledge out right. The rap anchor is way out right offering a free air (full single 60m rope makes it, no need for double ropes as stated here) rap back to the base. There has been a 3rd pitch added up through the roof, you can see its fixed rap from the trail.
