This was the first route bolted at Whistler Canyon and offers excellent varied and sustained climbing punctuated with good rests. Climb the middle of the face directly below and left of the pine tree. 2 ring anchors on top (beside the large pine). You may want to take a large (#3) cam to place between the 2nd and 3rd bolts.


On the first open wall on the left side of the North Canyon, climb the middle of the face directly below the pine tree on top.


fixed (10 bolts)

FUN climb! Mixed up climbing from slanting ledges near the bottom to sustained vertical straight up face and a little stemming higher up. I very fun climb. Sun in the morning.
