Description

This is the right-hand climb on the upper face at Hidden Jewels. This is a face climb broken by dike-like striations, which sometimes get in your face. The face gets a bit thin in places, but is relatively relaxed. Take along a little gear unless you don't mind taking a ground fall between the first and second bolts. Also, know the rope when lowering off, as this climb is at the limit of a 50m rope.

Protection

5 bolts with chains. Small cams and/or nuts will get you from the first to the second bolt.

The chains are shared with The Left One.

It's getting to the first bolt that worries me. It's about 40 feet up and you'd bounce off some pretty pointy stuff on the way down. You'll probably want gear to get you there, plus a small piece or two higher up. The crux is well bolted. The Left One and The Right One share chains, so it's easy to lead the Left One then toprope the Right One if you only have quickdraws. May 9, 2006
