Rodney Yee would be jelous of this location


The left line on the Altar, the beautiful pinnacle on the right side of the Vestibule. Clip the 1st bolt and boulder out the crux moves, a thin crank. From here the climb follows incipent seams for five more bolts on pretty continous 10 climbing. Remember a #5 Rock or equivalent for the last moves unless comfortable running it out, or escaping left to the top of Tabula Rasa. You might consider this a three star if you like bouldery routes, obviously I prefer continous lines, stellar nonetheless.


6 bolts to 2 bolt anchor. Note: A #5 rock or equivalent can be used in the crack after the last bolt before the anchors - or run it out.

I think this is the RIGHT hand route on the Altar; just right of Tabula Rasa.

A bolt has been added to the top of this route (not by me). No nuts are needed.

This is an awesome route. It makes Tabula Rasa seem way easy. The beginning is a bit bouldery, but the rest of it is solid and continuous. A few weeks ago I was there and one the important hold was pulled off and it made the beginning even more difficult. I only top roped it, but I imagine its a spicy lead. If your climber takes a fall near the bottom make sure they do not get an enema with the log/rock that's at the bottom.

Classic 11 move at the 1st bolt, once you figure it out.

Bolted all the way up, good protection after the 1st clip. Similar to Tabula but more fun (and not much harder) with better sequences.
