BETA PHOTO: Beta Shot showing the route.


The crux is likely along the narrow seam near the top of the climb. A nice long mixed Trad climb, this route has some poor quality rock at the start that is protected with three bolts.


Outside of the glitter box (south face). A beta photo has been provided. Fixed biners at the anchor. CAUTION: a 60 m rope will not get you to the ground. Instead, lower to a ledge just south (~25 feet) of "Three Amigos". Belay from there and walk off as if climbing Three Amigos.


Single rack up to a #three Camelot. Three bolts at the start, and one from a wandering route that crosses World Vision half way up. PLEASE LEAVE the anchor carabiners in place.

A neat climb which makes good use of gear-protected features, a nice change of pace from the bolt protected lines nearby. Bravo David!

Yes, a fun climb with the added bonus of a nice roof-like feature to clear up high (see Marcy's photos under "Glitter Box"). The gear is solid and will protect the climb w/o using the bolts if you so desire.
