Description 

Route is about a mile up the canyon. It will face you as you walk twards it. Find Bootleg tower (can't miss it)and the route is 100 yards to the right. If looking at it from the approch.


Protection 

Gear from hands to fists, bring (3)#3's for crux. Two bolt anchor. Funky low moves into a perfect layback, 75 feet. rock is soft and smooth.

What a fun route! If you hate laybacks you should get on this route you will like this one with its super positive edge. A good warmup for the business on Painted Datsun. Stays in the shade.

A single 60m rope works for the descent (don't worry about what the book says)

Much easier to find the faint 4 wheel drive to the north end of the canyon and walk up that. Then take a much less sloping trail to the base of this. Cairns will lead the way on that side of the canyon. Don't go up when you see bootleg like we did and grovel through sloping loose stuff.

AMAZING route. Glorious fingers, hands. Anchor is good. No one is ever back in Day Canyon and it's gorgeous and a great place to have to yourself with IC quality crack and no crowds.

And yes, a single 60M will get you back to the ground. No reason to bring 2 ropes.

Aaaand by #3's they must mean Friends? Solid no2 Camalots on the upper crack. Nice route but not half as good as the beauty next door!
