This is one of the great 'old skool' routes in 10 Mile Canyon. Begin the route off a shitty, sloping ledge and follow an easy, beautiful corner up 80' to a gear or lone tree belay. From the belay, continue up the corner to face/slab that leads under a prominent weakness through the roof. Plug some gear and crank through the roof (it may feel like 5.7+) to the slabby face above and 2-bolt anchor. Be careful of loose rock in the roof. Oh and the route name with a loose translation: "it's the foot"
An exposed hike up weird slabs will bring you to the cramped and dirty ledge where the right-facing corner begins. 2-60m raps gets you back down to the ledge. The red sling (it remains) is easily spotted on the lone tree in the middle of the wall.
Standard rack of cams to 3" and nuts.
Fixed (red) sling on the mid-way tree and 2-bolt anchor on top.
