Another quality route on the Vanishing Point, Phantom Bridge follows the bolt line under the large roof and around to the right of the arete and up the prominent dihedral. This route also starts at the belay anchors at the bottom of the formation. A long runner at the start of the traverse under the roof helps a lot to reduce rope drag for the upper section. Be EXTREMELY careful of the large loose block at this section as well, as dislodging it will cause it to fall directly on to your belayer! It may not be a serious risk right now, but it gives a deep reverberating hollow sound when you knock on it.
12 quickdraws and something for the anchor up top.

I had 4 24" runners, more would have been useful.

This is an excellent route. It seems harder now that a good edge has broken near the top of the dihedral, but 10c still seems about right.

Fantastic route. Very airy with great views.
Note: The climber in the image is not on Phantom Bridge. It looks like they are on The Vanishing.
