Route topo for Wheeler Gorge <br />Yellow: Cruiser (5.9) <br />Orange: Cobble Climb (5.8) <br />Red: Unknown (5.9+)
»
The only strange thing about this route is the location of the first bolt. Its placement in a protruding cobble does not inspire confidence. Many cobbles have pulled out over the years at Wheeler Gorge. As shown in the lower of the photos, there is a gaping hole from a pulled cobble just a couple of feet away from the first bolt.  <br /> <br />Since the first bolt protects the clear crux of the route, I was definitely wishing for something more reassuring.
