Description 

Etude For The Right Hand is located on the Practice Slab on the southeast side of the Nautilus. It climbs the right side of an easy, textured slab past three bolts and makes for an ideal beginner's climb. Other than that, there's not much to recommend it unless you're already in the neighborhood.


Protection 

3 bolts to a 2-bolt chain anchor.

any one know why the bolts are gone from this?bolt replacement?seems odd that the 2 off the deck are gone but the top and the anchor are still there.

The hanger is missing from the bolts low down on this route. It looks like it was removed/chopped. The bolt is still there if you are comfortable slinging it.

I just toproped it after having led Cornelius on the opposite side of the formation. Pro is ample on that crack climb and from the top its an easy walk to the anchors which fortunately are still there.

Nice slab, suggest TR as the 3rd hanger and bolt are currently missing. I would guess ground fall potential with a fall from high on the route.

A nice warm-up for later climbs. Second half of the climb is a bit runout (no protection), but very easy. By the time you're in ground-fall territory, you're in 4th class terrain.

Good way to access the shelf and routes atop Flying Buttress. Third bolt is still missing, but really easy there. You could get down from the shelf via these anchors, but prob easier/cleaner to rap from Flying Buttress anchors.

Someone took it upon themselves to not only replace the bolt on this climb but also bolted the left side of the formation. It's one thing to replace a missing bolt. It's another to take it upon yourself to bolt the route to the left that has for years been a TR climb that doesn't need some yahoo bolting it. In case that person is reading this, just so you know, we'll be heading back up tomorrow to chop, chop, chop.
