Description

This route is located just right of the trail on the front side of the dam. The bolting job sucks - if it was bolted sanely I'd give it two stars.

Climb up about 35 feet, pull the crux, and then clip the first bolt. Now you know why nobody ever does this route despite good climbing and a great position almost directly over Sylvan Lake. Easier and much better climbing above this leads to the top.

unless its sprouted some more bolts since i last did it, i would consider it a bolted traditional route. a route doesn't have to be bolt free to be trad.

has it had bolts added to it? Feb 13, 2006

Maybe I was having a bad day, but I found this way scarier than for example Patience which also has a high first bolt. I really didn't like the moves right before the first bolt. On the other hand, that was years ago and maybe my memory has inflated the nastiness of the climb. Feb 4, 2003
