Description:

This climb is above the lower (right) end of the main Grand Canyon wall.

From the bottom of the canyon, hike along the small trail rightwards, until it doubles-back (with fixed rope) up some 3rd class slab, as you would if you were going to set top-ropes for the main Grand Canyon walls. As you finish the roped slab, and come out near the top of the first climbs, look right (down into canyon is left) and you will see a bolted anchor, and bolts heading up from there. This is where the climb starts.

  1. 5.8 (32m) Thin slab past the first couple bolts, then straight-forward climbing to an anchor on a ledge.

  2. 5.8+ (25m) Traverse left along the edge to an obvious right facing corner/crack, up this over a small roof, as the crack widens to off-width to anchors up top.

Enjoy the view.

Descent: rappel the route, but if rappelling on a 60m rope, use the anchors directly below the crack of the 2nd pitch, rather then the anchors used during the ascent (climber's right of the crack/corner). Else, you may run out of rope getting to the base.
