P1 5.10 c/d 65ft New Bolts/Small Gear

This is the original line on the wall. It wanders back and forth between Comb Over and Chrome Dome following the weakness. This route was put up on the lead hence it is spicy in spots especially on the traverse for the secondbut not pg13. The start is just to the right of Comb Over in the dihedral. Clip a bolt, then place some gear, then clip a bolt and begin traversing to the right, clipping two more bolts on the way to the anchors.

P2 5.10 100ft New Bolts/Gear

Starts out right of anchors and shares first two bolts with Chrome Dome. After the first two bolts head left back toward Comb Over avoiding the steep part of the wall clipping 2 or 3 more bolts and then working your way up the next 50 feet of moderate climbing slinging crystals and placing gear where the rock allows.

When rapping off these anchors you may want to tie knots in the end of your rope.


small gear, draws, slings for chicken heads
