3 The Road to Riv...

Description 

This is the route to practice your mantle wizardry, over and over. But the mantles are not difficult. Lots of quartzite edges and holds to be found.

Makes a good first pitch for those climbing Trilogy Buttress. To do so, traverse from the top of the route to climber's right to the bottom of Wizardly Way or Lord of the Slings P2 5.9.


Location 

Scramble up the gully about 20 yds past Nine in Black. Belay from on top of a refrigerator-sized boulder.


Protection 

6 bolts, two bolt anchor.

There are one or two pitches above this . . . what are they? Beta anyone?

By the way, this is a fun route. Not loose and only a few pebbles on the ledges. The star ratings hide a good climb.
