The crux is after last (fourth) bolt. This line has clean face climbing up till then.


This climb lies on the West side of canyon. Go past the lake, past the trail to Whale's Tail, and then go right up a trail to concrete steps and to a wall. Clamber along the base of the cliff. It is located to the left of Tempest Toast.


4 bolts. 2 bolt anchor.

This is a nice short route with a tough crux. I had to grab a finger pocket and pull up mainly from that. Enjoyable.
