BETA PHOTO: "Everybody Has An Opinion" as seen from the mouth ...
This is a short route with a few fun moves. I think it is worth doing if you came here to climb everything else. Perhaps this is more of a boulder problem, but then again... "Everybody Has An Opinion," right? In my opinion, it is good climbing, but too short to be a very good route.
Work your way off of the ground into the corner past a crux opening move (5.8) and up a few mover moves into larger holds. Place gear and continue up to the top of the corner. It is only a few body lengths of climbing.
This route lies down from the central area and further East. It is the highest (most western) route in the canyons area. The route lies 40' back into an 8' wide slot and ascents a steeply overhanging, right-facing corner. This can be clearly seen (refer to beta photo) from the mouth of West end of the slot-canyons through the 3rd Advisor - refer to the beta photo. Notice the bright yellow stripes on the right hand wall in the action shots. This climb should be easy to recognize. If you walk to the base, you could turn left and go down another slot. This is perhaps 100' above/West of 'Good Advice Is Hard To Follow.'
Small to fist-sized cams. Belay from tree up top, scramble off to East and down into chimney.
