Description:

On the right side of the trail, just as you enter the canyon. It is four pitches of free climbing, with enormous ledges to belay off of. You need two ropes to descend. Fun route, with a cool "overhang".

Descent Options:

Bolts/webbing on pitches 3/4 are sketchy but that is all you have. Two ropes are needed to get from belays 3-1 and 1-ground.

5 out of 5 stars 8+..... 2 grades! Summit is cool

Make sure to take the #5, Supertopo says optional but you will be sad without it, I was. Also, to rate this climb 8+ is looking to get someone hurt. The first pitch is solid 9 and the second has some sustained at the grade moves. Supertopo gives it 10a and I would tend to agree with that as it is more difficult than some comparable tens in the Canyon, at least for the Right Toilet Crack anyways. The summit is kickass although you couldn't tell from looking at it from the bottom.
