From the bolt belay, face climb up anthen wake a tricky travers left by a bolt (crux) then up towards a left leaning handcrack that leads to the canyon rim. The final hand crack is awkward and somewhat strenuous, anms well as being poorly protected due to somewhat broken rock. I found the crack exit harder than the "crux" step-across.


Use same rappel anchor as Greystoke, but rap into the canyon proper and not the alcove for Greystoke. Rap to a ledge (sloper!) with a single bolt belay anchor. The route lies about 20 feet right (East) from Greystoke.


Light rack with emphasis on RPs, some smaller wires, and cams to 2". Protection is "sparse."

Rather than contaminate the route description with my personal opinion of this climb, heres my "comment." : I really didn't enjoy this climb, although it may be worth doing. It is just barely "one star." I almost gave it the "bomb," but didn't think that would be fair to the first ascent party. The face climbing is decent, but the final hand crack is grungy.
