Looking down from the top of Nickle and Dime


Nickle and Dime is a beautiful two pitch route located on the left side of the sport routes. This route can take off from different locations. The most common start is from the high ledge where Kinethesis departs. From this ledge the route follows the arete on the left end of the ledge up past four bolts to large ledge w/ two bolt chain anchors. The alternate start is a Trad start from the next ledge below Kinethesis. From this ledge follow a large handcrack 15 ft to the Kinethesis ledge and then depart along the usual arete.
Pitch two climbs up and left from the anchors along good edges. The climbing varies depending on your line. Traversing left and right around bolts usually offers easier climbing. Climb past 6 bolts along the face to the high crux and onto the two bolt chain anchors.


10 Bolts, 2 Anchors, Optional Gear start

Gorgeous, granite-like plated rock on p2.
