Does the Geezer wall have bolted routes again or is it still trad?

The ones that have cracks are trad. The one that have bolts are not.

I hope you laughed when you wrote that, because I laughed when I read it.

More curious about which ones are still bolted

I'm not sure whether any of them are still entirely bolted. The removal and subsequent rebolting left some pretty spotty stuff...

Thanks, my wife is wanting to try an easier multi pitch sport route, and I am trying to accommodate, any other areas I should look at?

Try Mule Hollow for easy multipitchin with draws. Crossing Over at Geezer is all bolts and pretty fun.

Rock Canyon has better options for bolted multipitches.

How bad is the hike in? Compared to Blister Hill on Olympus. If we go there it will be for trad, I have a suspicion she wants to do sport so the packs are lighter going in

I like yer humor, but some the bolted routes are really trad routes as they have trad pro placements from top to bottom.

There are no multi pitch routes on Geezer wall they are all half pitch at best. As said Mule Hollow is probably your best bet.

Depends on the length of your rope, I suppose...but...Lower Dentures and Upper Dentures would be over half a standard 60m rope, methinks. Would be ok for trying multi pitch without the commitment of hiking all the way to Mule Hollow.

Couple of those routes on the left side of the wall have short anchors for half rope type pitches, I'm guessing. Would work for multi pitch practise.

Hey William, Try the Superslab in the mouth of LCC. There are many 5.6-ish multipitch routes and a really nice view of the canyon. This current weather is perfect for up there, especially if it stays breezy.

Hmmm...many 5.6 multi pitch routes at Super Slab. Name one?

Too...I'm not thinkin' many of the routes at Super Slab are "sport" bolted either.

Ten is right if you assume trad and the old school lines mentioned here:

All of the green lines are old existing routes done in the 70's or earlier. The yellow routes are the new bolted lines done recently. The red circles are bolted belay/rap stations.

Still not seeing all these "many" 5.6 routes. And, the one that's "5.6 or 5.7" is consensus rated at 5.7.

So, there's none. And, the bolt spread is such that I wouldn't offer it up for some fledgling leader trying their first multi pitch easy sport offering. Way different on these slab routes if BCC-esque type climbing is your deal.

If you like and are experienced at friction routes with well spaced bolts...then, by all means, git 'er done!

Wait a second. Did I just try and contradict one of the masters of LCC knowledge?

pfft! What was I thinking! :)

Still, those older crack systems make it a great area for easy and generally well-protected multi-pitch adventuring.

Of course, they'll have sore calves for a week.
