Casey gettin high on mushroom
This is arguably the best problem in the canyon. Sit/campus start on the right side on two good pockets. After a campus move or two, move out left to the two good jugs, from there throw up to a sloper rail on the face. Traverse left then either dyno or reach high for an obvious pocket (crux) then climb straight up and top out.
Right side of Mushroom beginning on the good pockets down low.
To get down, easily scramble down the backside of Mushroom.
Boulder pad and spotter.

There isn't a "sloper rail" to throw to on this problem anymore. Looked like there was a somewhat recent break...I had to go left to the jug, right to the smallish sloping crimp, then a pretty long move left to the sloping jug. Bump up onto the jug rail/pocket, high left foot and crank to the high pocket. The area where it looked like there was a break seemed pretty unusable at this point.

Yes a hold did brake a few months ago, but that wasnt the sloper rail refered to. There really isnt a "rail" at all; ethier a small crimp/pocket(that could break as well) or the sloping lip of the small roof that isn't very positive. The brake made the boulder a tad harder than before.
