At the right end of the formation there's a wide face just above a very large Pinion Pine. Set up a TR and wander up whatever doesn't move. The FA sounded like the end of the meal in a Greek restaurant.



7 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

First done in the early-mid 80s by Outward Bound. They call the formation "Hollow Mountain".

This route is pretty sound. most of the loose stuff is gone. Bolts would be nice, but we can't do that!
