|Penitente - Inner Canyon
This route is the middle of three routes on the east-facing wall on the south side of the canyon across from the Bullet the Blue Sky area. A cool start leads to a smooth face and hard pockets and crimps. Right when the holds seem to disappear at the last bolt, reach a good sidepull up on the slab and the anchors. The last clip is very difficult.
5 bolts and anchors.

This is a great route because it is much more gymnastic than many Penitente routes...in fact, you can even get a no-hands knee bar right at the start! If you think this route is crimpy, then you haven't climbed at Penitente much...I'd say it's par for the course.
This is a very nice piece of stone. It's shady in the middle of the day when everything else is greasing, so it's a great option.

I thought this was easier and much better than Dazed A.C. The movement was much more aesthetic and not nearly as cryptic or power-crimpy.
