The crux is at the bottom, climb to the chains, or better yet continue through the "eye" and top out. Awesome route. It can go with gear.


This is in a hidden side canyon.


Bolts or standard rack.

This route is Witching Hour (5.11c) in the D'Antonio book. I remember it having a hard start... harder than 11a? My memory tells me yes. Great route!

Book says .11c, felt .11c, must be .11c
