An old bolt on Simply Replaced. This would not ins...


This is a very nice climb, but is short. You finish wishing that is was a full 160 feet of similar face climbing. Original route line lost to history (Someone out there probably knows the FA party). An old line based on the O-ring bolts here. I pulled 2 of these old bolts out by hand, but there are 2 remaining on the route for your inspection. Four shiny new bolts exist along side these old relics.


This face climb is located on the right tower.


Four shiny bolts and 2 old O-ring bolts for future museum. A two bolt anchor at top for rappel and TR. Could use chains instead of webbing to reduce impact.

Thanks for the new bolts! This is probably one of the better climbs out here. Pretty easy for the grade. The crux is probably right before clipping the 2nd bolt. Be careful though, a lot of the holds are flaky and hollow so pull down and not out. Definitely could be longer!

Short but fun. Some of the flakes don't look 100% solid. As long as you're careful and pull down there's no problem, I never felt like anything was about to pull off.
