Description 

This is the shallow, left facing corner about 100 feet left of Shibumi and 25 feet right of the edge of the main formation. It can be seen on the topo page 152 of the Eldorado Canyon guidebook, starting at a split block on the ledge system that traverses the formation.

Power up the steep corner via thin face moves and stemming to good holds about 35 feet up. From here, the angle kicks back and it's about .10a straight up and slightly right through a small roof to the obvious ledge sysem. Belay here or continue right and slightly down to the tree on Shibumi.

The topo says 120 feet to the ground, but one 60m rope will get you down. This route is really fun!

Protection 

Rack 2 each up to a #2.5 Friend. Bring a few micro nuts for the start.

Cameron's Corner is now a three-pitch route. Brad Bond, Pamela Emanoil and Dougald MacDonald added a short direct start and a direct finish to this great route. The first pitch is a shallow left-facing corner in a slab with wires and RP pro, something like 5.8+ and somewhat serious near the top. Brad Bond's 5.11 second pitch is a mega-classic -- as good as anything on Rincon. The third pitch breaks through the roof just left of the belay with unique buckets and strenuous-to-place but good pro. Continue on steep ground to the summit ridge (5.10a).

Combine 1 and 2. This would be four stars except for the 20' of choss just before the belay. We skipped the last pitch as the start looked a bit dicey and Shibumi was calling. Note, if you don't want to do P3 you can move right about 30' (5.5) and do the 95' P1 rap of Shibumi.

I thought the start of the third pitch was a little dicey for sure. After you crank a few moves, good gear can be found; however, it seems that if a hold broke high-factor fall potential is present. Good climb though.
