Folows the right-trending crack.

Description 

Great climb that is steep and follows a great natural line. Don't let the beginning scare you away. Just do the first pitch and rap down.


Location 

Next crack system right of Moon Shadow. Start up a thin crack to a ledge and traverse right (protect with a #3 Camalot) to gain the winding crack. If you go to the top, rap off the tree to the first pitch anchors. Double rope rap for the first pitch.


Protection 

Doubles to #3 Camalot with extra hand and thin hand sizes. Go to the anchors that are about 150 feet up

Possibly the best pitch of crack climbing in the canyon.

It is possible to traverse left from the anchors and finish up Moon Shadow. This way would be recommended.
