Belaying under the chockstone. This final pitch behind Jay is obvious and an excellent finish. It is probably the original end to the climb.

Comments: Eric Breitenburger and I climbed and named this variation in the summer of 1985 or '86. It needed a lichen cleaning and friable flakes peeled off. This variation probably had not been climbed before because of the condition, but one never knows.

Comments: That is what I remember about the bolt placement (but I could be wrong, it is "No Country for Old Men", of which I am quickly becoming). The pitch is committing.

Aaron, good score on that fixed gear, Kent placed that under a high degree of stress!

Comments: Nice...a Joe Brown/Climb High helmet. But it should really be paired with EBs to make the most style points.

Comments: dmssssss is correct, the route goes on the face below, it's not an uncommon Black Canyon style traverse pitch...goes up, goes down, then up. It follows good rock to get to the anchors. On one of our forays we also went under that roof... not very much fun. Guess that's why it's called Rockineering.
If I remember, there is a pin placed in a horizontal directly across from the belayer halfway out the traverse, but I'm not sure it is visible from the belay. The topo has it marked pretty accuratel... more >>
