BETA PHOTO: Routes 5 and 4. Route 5 is the hanging dagger on ...

Description 

The big enchilada. This monstrous hanging dagger falls from the lip of the canyon and hangs free for most of its length as it tries touch down. If it does, it's a burly free standing pillar. If not, it's radical, loose dry-tooling through a 15-foot cave to overhanging munge (held together with ice) to the hanging widow-maker. Mike Dahlberg once led this with removable bolts on lead to get to the hanger.


Location 

Immediatley up river from previous route.


Protection 

When in, screws. When not, TR.

I'm not ashamed to say that I don't even know what a "removable bolt" is.

I'd speculate that it's quite possibly a bolt that pops when you fall on it :)
