A nice route up some beautiful rock. Thin moves & gear lead up a nice crack. Up high some thin moves remain in lighter colored rock. Good fun.


Located just as you come around the corner from Kung Fu Theater into the Confluence area. An obvious splitter on a red face next to a tree.


Lots of cams from tiny up thru maybe .5 or .75 camalot, nuts, & some runners. Rappel off bolted anchor.

No offense to the poster, but I hate it when people say "lots of cams". What does that mean? 4 of each size? 10? This is the desert. Quantity matters. Here is my suggestion for this one:
1 green c3
2 red c3
4-5 .3 camalot
3-4 .4 camalot
3-4 .5 camalot

This thing is thin the whole way, so make sure you have at least one .3, one red c3, and one .5 for the top section where it angles right after the good rest.
