At the second bolt and the most difficult moves.

6 bolts, no anchors! This is in a small alcove with a pair of climbs separated by about 10 feet. This is the right-hand climb listed as #4 in the Classic Rock Climbs guide to the area. This is a fun little climb that works up a face to a crack higher up. Continue up the face/crack along plentiful (albeit small) holds. The face moves get a little thin towards the top, but something usually pops out where you need it. The bolts for the anchor are in place; however, there are no hangers on the anchor bolts. It is possible safely traverse to the anchors on the adjacent climb, but it's probably easier just to lead this one and then walk off the top.

Addendum: the hanger on the 3rd bolt and anchors are missing. You can traverse left to clip the anchors for Unknown Q.


6 quickdraws and a rope.
