Access Issue: Rim Rock Trail Closure Details

Description

Climb just right of Shadow of a Hangdog (aka Fat Fingers), following the bolt line just left of the dihedral with the large crack. Follow a thin crack up and right to a small roof. Clip, then make a sweet dynamic move to a good hold. It's unclear whether the route uses the opposite face to stem off of; we did.

Protection

3 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. Micro cams or small stoppers would be a good idea for the lower half of the route.

This description is a little misleading. The route starts out as a crack climb for the first 25 feet at least. Gear is required! When the climb gets steeper at the top, there are three closely spaced bolts. The bolted line is a bit contrived to me; following the strength of the rock rather than the obvious weakness. It seemed much easier to move right and join "Stony Middleton" rather than climb a few desperate face moves out of character with the rest of the route. Feb 10, 2008

I thought it was a nice route. If you traverse slightly right, but not all the way to Stony Middleton, the line is pretty aesthetic. May 24, 2009

This would be 3 stars if the other wall wasn't there. It's annoying trying to avoid the stem. But there are really fun, well protected moves....

And you don't need anything bigger than a purple Camalot (and I don't mean #5). Jan 5, 2010
