Find the bolted line in the center of the Northwest face of Veiny. This is the center of three bolted routes on this formation. Climb through the 5 bolts to the rap anchors. The crux is getting up to the first bolt and moving past it, but the landing is good.


5 bolts, fixed anchors, one rope rappel


The anchors on top of this route are looking a bit sketchy and rusty... I think they are 1/4" closed shut. Just be careful when setting your anchor and try to back it up some way. Otherwise another solid 5.10 for the area Jul 10, 2008
BHCC replaced the anchors on this recently. Dire Spire is next on the list. 1/4 inch bolts on anchor and the bolt on the route. Hopefully we can get to it in the next week or so. Keep an eye out for manky gear and let us know. Thanks. Jun 1, 2009
anybody watch "northern exposure" back in the day? Fleishman was having a difficult time understanding why he was here/ there at all. I bolted this sometime in the early nineties. Were the anchors really that bad? i'm kind of embarrassed...glad they got replaced...thanks ron. Jun 7, 2009
