A longer and better route than some in the area. A nice corner with nice climbing. Belay up top can be done from the bolted anchors of 'Gleaming The Cube (12a).'


Walk West back along the canyon wall from the East End of the fence, perhaps 50 meters. Arrange a rap into the steep gully and walk out on rubble to it's Western side. You will see a bolted route, 'Gleaming the Cub (12a)' and a right-facing corner just left of it. THat corner is 'First Blood (10a).'


A rack from fingers to fist.

Belay for toprope from the slot down towards the river from the Gleaming bolts, as this is the top out for the route. There are good cracks far back towards Greystroke for a top anchor.

New two bolt anchor at the top. Look down towards the river from Gleaming bolts. If leading, rap off of Gliming the Cube anchors to keep your pulled rope out of the water. Morning sun and fun.
