|Continental Crag & Upper Rattlesnake Gulch Trail - Raptor closures MORE INFO >>>|
2016 Closure on Shirt Tail Peak Effective March 11,2016 MORE INFO >>>
This is a so-so route with so-so gear and so-so rock. Basically it is a line along the lines of Primal Scream
and On Slot
but skipping the good and hard parts.
Starting to the right, on the pillar to the left of Primal Scream
. Step right from this and up to the cracks of Primal Scream
, then before the crux cracks of Primal, escape right to On-Slot
(notably, above the hard climbing of On Slot
Shortly thereafter, climb right around the corner from there to ride the arete (some loose rock) to the top of the wall. Go left at a ledge just before the true summit to reach the belay/rap anchor. A #3 and/or #3.5 Camalot will back up the rap anchor higher up for better belaying position and less drag.
This is on the upper right buttress of Continental Crag, amongst the routes ?Primal Scream? and On Slot
A light rack from nuts to hand-sized cams can be placed. With careful judgment regarding the rock quality, it should all be solid.

I found this much harder than its rating of 5.9. Maybe because of the lichen at the crux leaning weird crack/slab. Gear was good, though.
