Description 

Silver Surfer is a short route beginning left of Beef Eater. It begins in a chimney, then goes up a left angling crack up to bolted anchors with webbing. Can't miss it. You can easily rap from here or continue on your choice of two bolted routes, one 12a and the other 13b.

The protection is excellent, the chimney is funky, the move into the crack is fun, and the crack itself is good.

I'd add your own webbing.


Protection 

Standard rack to #3 camalot; no small stoppers needed.

Short, but worthwhile. The easiest route on this section of Holdout.
