Description

This is the second bolt line from the right on the east-facing (first) section of the Left Hand Wall. The climb has a thin start past three bolts on a relatively slick face. Things get easier higher up. Overall, this is a fun and straightforward face climb.

Protection

6 bolts with chains.

Very spicy getting to first bolt. Bad landing too, so watch out. I found this considerably harder than the 5.9 to the left. Both 5.8s and the 5.9 all get easier higher up. May 9, 2006

A little tricky at the bottom. I found myself wishing I had a spot. Nov 25, 2011

PG-13 without supplemental gear (micro cams). Ledge-fall runouts on easier but not trivial ground near the top, start is significantly harder than 5.8. Dec 3, 2011

Like most of the climbs on this wall falling before the first bolt would kinda suck. Crux moves are well protected with 3 bolts, then some pretty good runouts on easier terrain. Fun climb. Added mussy hooks to chains. Dec 27, 2011

Unfortunately I watched a new friend fall and sprain her ankle on this climb going to the high 1st bolt today. I followed up her efforts and thought it was odd that the crux of the climb comes before you are on belay. I also found a bomber nut placement in the crack of the low crux. I would at least label this route as mixed. It's worth doing, but bring your nuts (one way or the other) or stick clip the 1st bolt. Jan 16, 2017
Old school rock climbs often had the hardest moves low to the ground. Ideally the climber has enough experience to make a judgement about whether they can do it or not. The choice to try an unprotected sequence is based on how many climbs were climbed at that grade without falling and if your confidence in your ability justifies the risk of injury or death. CLIMBING IS NOT A GAME!

This climb and Resume Builder are not good for beginners or people climbing at their limits. No judgement made regarding the above post just saying for future reference. Will add to info in SQ III. Jan 21, 2017
