After walking through the slightly jungle'esq begining of the canyon, you will come across an old jeep road on the right side of the drainage. Follow this and you should see a slot canyon on your left after about a 10 minute walk. As the wall comes back into the main canyon, you should see the route on a small ledge. Go down to the drainage and up, look for the trail leading to the base of the route (small, loose, scree slope). Park it and climb. I know the picture is a bit hazy, but the route is as nice as the surroundings. I only did the one route, but this canyon has a lot of climbs to keep you busy for the entire day.
Bolts with slings at the top. 70' route needing small unites up to 2.5"
BETA PHOTO: Ok NIVEK. Agreed. Is this one better? At least ...

Great splitter 5.9 finger crack. Bring several pieces in the orange and red TCU size (.75 to 1.0"). Nice and shady on hot days. Anchor is a drilled angle a really old bolt. If top roping, be sure to back up with an extra finger-sized piece in the crack (better yet...someone should replace that crappy old bolt).

A fun route! Id recommend about at least 4 cams in the .5-.75 camalot range plus one of everything as the crack is varied in size down low.

The picture does not do this route justice. It is an awesome slabbish splitter. A great route to practice locks and finger stacks due to the slightly less than vertial wall.

About as fun as a route can get. Just perfect. Almost all fingers with perfect pro.
Day Canyon is so beautiful and without any crowds. Great place to do a route like this...Kyle Copeland splitter in a perfect place.
