New line on Outer Outlet! Put in ground-up without previously top-roping. There is a crux in the beginning and the middle. Exciting, but safe, runouts. Best place to belay is in the perch at the base of the chimney to the right.


On the SW corner of Outer Outlet, start beneath the large chockstone and follow crack system up toward chimney. Once at top of the ramp, head left and stand on detached blocks (careful!) to clip first bolt. Trend left onto face from the seams after the third bolt.


9 Bolts
.3 & .4 cams (yellow metolius)

Which bolts did Joel drill? I will make sure not to test them.
