Crux of "Anchors Away."

Add Photo Add Comment    Printer View

Description 

Climb up through some rock where you don't want to fall, clip the first bolt and then go straight up through 3 more bolts to the anchors. The crux is the thin, but good holds between the third and fourth bolt.


Location 

Go through the cave/hole to the left of Trident to a ledge that is above the main trail. Turn around and look up above the mouth of the mouth of the cave. The climb furthest right and above the cave is Anchors Away. Please be careful about picking a belay spot so you don't block the trail on the ledge, and to not knock loose rocks onto the main trail below.


Protection 

4 bolts and bolted anchors. If you don't feel confident, stick clip the first bolt because a tumble would send you off of a rather high ledge.

The climbing to the first bolt is quite casual; a stick clip makes the route G-rated.
