Box Canyon is privately owned. MORE INFO >>>


This route starts with a tough little overhang followed by some technical vertical climbing on mostly good holds. A bulge about halfway up provides a pumpy crux and then some more vertical rock to the anchor.


Climb the "Tennis Shoe Slab" to get to this route. Its the farthest route right on the wall.


8 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.
