vanishing point


There is a bolted line immediately left of Toothless Grin. This route starts on the first two bolts of Toothless Grin and heads left, following a horizontal crack above a big roof. Then the climb veers sharply up, and climbs past numerous bolts to an anchor above the upper roof system.

The climbing on this route is certainly unique, from the pumpy crack traverse, to the technical slab (we used a slab-dyno), to the big tenuous moves before the anchor. Though this route may not be considered classic by everyone, I am aware that there is a small, but somewhat askew, following.


Mostly bolts. Two pins. One Alien to back up the first pin.

I can't remember what he called it, but I'm pretty sure it's a Bob Parrott route from the late 90's. 12+ sounds about right.
