A good climb with some tricky moves. Also one of the longer routes around! Enjoy mostly good gear and good rock to the top of the climb, using longer slings to keep drag in check. In 2001 there was a family of otters who played in the river just east of the belay, keeping us entertained for the afternoon.


Perhaps 200 meters West of the Wine and Roses anchor and just past a dead-end gully descending part way into the canyon there is a huge right-facing corner. The buttress that this borders on the east is referred to as 'The Indian Head.'


A standard rack, maybe a little heavier than normal, owing to the pitch length. Two ropes to rap in to a stance well above the river with a gear anchor.

Be careful on this route! There is a huge boulder that is loose near the bottom half of the climb (As of 6/13/09). If this were to come off it would injure the climber and belayer severely.
