Hot Fudge Thursday, 5.9
|[ Sizes: Orig | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
Gain a trail that climbs the left side of the canyon until you reach what they refer to as the “football field”. Basically a large vegetated plateau that is still separated from the south wall by another peak of sorts. Traverse the slick rock to the right of this obstacle and either continue up the gully itself, staying left when possible or if you ate your wheaties, gain the rib on the right of the final gully and solo up some 5.6 slab, with no protection. Once above this water worn slab headwall, continue to the base of the upper south wall and start just left of a twisted juniper below black varnish and a decent 5.8 trad crack that curves right over an arch.
