Description 

Follow bolts up through the big roof then start pluggin' gear in the shallow, meandering crack on an otherwise clean face (very sustained). Fight to protect the crux.


Location 

This route is about a half mile up river from the main climbing area. Walk along the canyon rim then descend down a drainage marked by a cairn. Once you get cliffed out, shimmy left to a two bolt anchor w/ chains.


Protection 

Quickdraws, standard climbing rack, off-set stoppers are useful, 70m rope.

Can't wait to get on these three routes, but I know for a fact that a 70m rope will do for any route in this area. Nothing is over 90 feet. Thanks for posting this description.

Rapping off the anchors, a 60m will not quite reach the ground on the middle routes, the one on the left, Nojo, is slightly shorter.

Hmmm... I'm not seeing that, but I will give it a try. Hey, so there are a total of 4 routes on that wall where NoJo and Slope style are right? But only 3 are listed. Which is the farthest one on climber's left? Looks like a dead vertical route on yellow rock with bolts spaced closer together. Then it goes through the roof and doesn't have a lot of chalk on it. Thoughts?

In the little alcove, Nojo is the one on the left (the one you are referencing), then there is an unamed dihedral. Ballchopper, then Slopestyle. We cleaned the dihedral on the right and put anchors in, would be a good 5.9/10 warmup, never bolted it though.

So, what would that unamed shallow corner be rated?

Okay, but let's not call it 120 feet. It's less than 100 feet tall.
