HLB rapping L.S.D.


This is the first “sport route” in the Refuge. This east facing climb is located on a short wide tower below (and east) the Torch. On the right hand side of the structure in the center of a near-vertical face (bulge near the top). Face climb on a left arching bolted line pulling the bulge to reach the anchors.


Righthand of the two climbs of the area. See map.


8 bolts.

plenty of hollow sounding rock, but good holds abound too.
adding a couple chain links to the anchors (or climber using long draws at the anchor) would reduce rope-drag for the 2nd.
overall, pretty fun climbing!
