Description

Five and Dime is located on the same pillar as Small Purchase which is on the east side of the next gully west of Cartwright Corner. This gully is a rap route for Community Pillar and it provides the left margin of Magic Triangle.

The route climbs the razor-edge arĂȘte just 15 feet left of Small Purchase. There are four awkwardly placed bolts leading to a roof. The climbing here is technical and balance oriented. Once at the roof, go left to a finger crack and head up to the top, past one more bolt. Use the same 3-bolt anchor as Small Purchase to rappel 100 feet.

Small rack, 5 bolts

I really like this route. I'm not sure about 10b. If you stay on the hard side of the arete with the bolts it felt like a good/ hard 10d to me. Either way, awesome combo deal if you hit small purchase! Apr 23, 2009

More like 10+. Despite the odd position of the first two bolts, this is a SUPERB pitch. Bring small nuts, a .3 camalot, a blue alien and a #3 camalot. Nov 13, 2011

I'm no expert but the bolts looked pretty old and rusted. It can also be a little awkward cleaning if you don't have someone seconding it. Jan 29, 2014
The bottom 5 bolts on this route have been updated to stainless. 3 days ago
