Description

Make some exposed moves off a ramp to reach a large flake and a high 1st bolt (if wanted a 0.75" cam fits into a horizontal crack before the 1st bolt). The moves just past the 2nd bolt, pulling past as bulge on thin holds, are the crux, after which the difficulty eases and the angle kicks back to less than vertical.

Due to the sloping and somewhat precarious base it would be prudent to set an anchor for the belayer (pro to 1.5") or lead from the ground in one pitch.

Although short this route features fun movement and high quality rock in a quiet and seldom visited area. Two stars out of five.

Location

Triumph Arch is high on the northwest corner of King Dome and is best seen and approached from the north. Scramble up a gully to the base of the route via a gritty ramp speckled with orange lichen.

Protection

4 bolts, anchors (all 3/8"), optional pro to 1.5"
