Description 

One of AF Canyon's easier routes in a beautiful location. This route is the second route from the left (north) of Juniper Wall. The route is partially shaded by evergreens in the afternoon.

The climbing is small positive edges and a few pockets. The start is thin; the crux, such as it is, is a small bulge about half way up.

It is one of the few AF routes that can be easily top roped by reaching the anchor from the top. The anchor is reached by scrambling around the north end of Juniper Wall (easy 3rd class).

There is a juniper "tree" (bush, really) about 10 feet back from the edge that can be used to secure yourself while setting up a top rope (I used it; braver souls might skip it).


Protection 

Four bolts to two chain anchors. Anchor is accessible from the top.

Book read in shade by Ashley Blanchard. <br /> <br />This picture shows how very nice the belay areas are at the base of the wall (the slope is really fairly steep behind the terraces). Thanks, whoever did it!
