Jackie flashes the slab.
|2016 Seasonal Raptor Closures - Eagle Rock remains closed MORE INFO >>>|
This is a short slab with an early crux just left of What's Mine Is Yours
. It may feel less challenging to those who excel on slabs. This stays in the shade until late morning.
Move up just left of the mine hole. Clip a bolt, perhaps with a locking biner, and engage the crux sequence. Oddly, keeping both feet to the left seemed to be more stable to start. Trust the feet, since the hand holds aren't big...thank goodness it isn't vertical. Continue up on gradually easier terrain past 3 more bolts. You can place an optional yellow Alien/TCU just before the 3 bolt anchor. Beware when sitting below this route on a windy day. We got a softball-sized rock bouncing down the gully to the right heading straight for my partner. I deflected it with my hand, but it bruised it up and it's sore.
Obviously, this is not the real name of this climb. If you have info about the climb, let me know and I can update this. Thanks!
4 bolts, an optional yellow Alien/TCU, and a 3 bolt anchor with a weird, made in China hanger...the likes of which I've not encountered on a climb previously.
