The route starts at the far south end of Keyhole, but you can jump on the ridge anywhere you want. I start near the first really steep section.


The pro is scarce in some spots, but with a set of nuts, and Metolius cams 3-9 it is plenty safe. I like to use extenders rather than regular draws; plan on 5 per pitch.
