Clip bolt down low to protect the chossy start. Climb crack system above to bolt on the first bulge. Follow bolt line through bulges above. Maybe easier for taller climbers. Great route- steep for the Canyon!


Obvious bolted route up the center of the north facing wall of Nu Ethix. There are a couple of random bolts high on the wall to the left of Root Down that appear to be a continuation of the initial crack of Root Line, route unknown.

Bring a cord for the bolted anchor, if lowering. Walk off towards Blackline. If lowering on a 60 meter rope, tie a knot in the end as the climber being lowered will have to downclimb a bit.


Need a few nuts/cams for the initial crack system, then all bolts above.
