 We went to Devils Canyon in Grand Junction to check out some the the unknown established cracks. Here Sean is getting his on sight attempt on! After a 5.12+ section of .3inch jamming, it backed off to some moderate 1 inch crack. After that, the route had a few feet of OW and finished with .75 inch flares! What a route!

 Sean killing the mid section.

 After the send, a little showboating!

 I got to try the route next door which had a great opening sequence.

 The middle of the climb was moderate and full of variety and the end was .75 finger splitter to .5 fingers to .4 all through a slightly overhanging bulge.SO Good!!!

 Mike just about to blow his knee out on the opening roof moves.

 Mike taking a few more jams before calling it a day. Both cracks are right next to each other and are a little dusty, but perfect for climbing. 13- on left and 12+ on right.

At the end of the day we found more anchors up canyon and had to climb this 1 inch dihedral and roof! Amazing 11+/12- Surprise holds made this thing a great route to end on!!
