Description

This route lies in the back right of a small alcove just west of Deck Chairs on the Titanic. Start on the right side of the alcove, about 10 yards to the right of Pee on Dee, and move up to the nice ledge. Follow the crack up and left. You can't use the huge ledge at the top of the climb on the left side - you can use the crack, but no feet or hands on the top of it.

Protection

3 bolts to a 2 chain anchor. Addendum: there are optional gear placements to protect you before the 1st bolt.

Currently, there is only 1 anchor bolt! Traverse to a two bolt anchor to rappel/lower.

Rattlesnake Alert!

Per AP: there was a rattlesnake 2/3rds up this route.

Still missing an anchor bolt. Dec 5, 2016
Did this route on 2/10/2016, ther'es only one anchor bolt! Had to traverse over and use the anchors on the route to the left. Wouldn't recommend until the anchor is fixed. Feb 11, 2016

Anchor bolt is still missing. Don't trust those chains on top either. Both studs wiggle in their holes.... Jan 15, 2014

Walked up the gully and top roped off the chains. Great starter climb. This pics shows going off to the left more towards Pee on D. You can get creative with how you approach getting up. Jul 7, 2013

Great route, hard start! Will take a nice cam in the first crack if you don't want to pull the crux unprotected on your way to the high first bolt. Mar 2, 2013

Got to the top and found only one anchor. Didn't realize there were chains just over the edge, so I down-climbed to the anchors on "Pee on Dee", then down-climbed, and back-cleaned all my draws.

I'd recommend changing out the one ring anchor for a standard hanger. That way folks will know to continue up until they get to the chains. Sep 19, 2012

Currently there is only one anchor bolt on the face at the top. (Likely over torqued and sheared off.) Fortunately, there are 2 bolts with chains just up over the top to belay from. (It's nice to belay at the top.) Then you can rap' or walk off. Jan 29, 2012

WTF, will the morons with the MAGIC MARKS leave them at home. There is a good guidebook, we do not need the routes grade and # on the cliff in magic marker, Graffiti.

Fun, easy climb, 5.7. Mar 11, 2011

Route has newer Fixe anchors w/rap rings. Lots of monster holds. 5.7+ in my book. Nov 9, 2007

Start directly underneath the first bolt for a more interesting climb. Oct 5, 2006
As of Tuesday May 31, this had scary spinners on the top bolt anchors. I could loosen and tighten them with my fingers! May 31, 2005
