Access Issue: Road & nearby private property Details
Please do your best to maintain good relationships with the people who own the land in this area. Do not drive your vehicle past the "private property" sign. Do not go up to the house to ask for directions to the crag. Do not ride your bike down the road. Please move immediately to the side of the road if any landowners are approaching in their vehicles.
Event Horizon lies in the Waffle Wall region of this face. Uphill from Slippery Nipple is another black streak and just before this streak is a bolted, near vertical face with bolts. This is Event Horizon. Climb past half a dozen bolts to a double bolt anchor on thin edges and flakes. A bit spooky, Event Horizon is a bolted face put up by some rough-riding tradsters and gives away its pro only after you haul up and take it. Two stars for excellent edge climbing, high continuity, on a largely vertical wall. Like Slippery Nipple, Event Horizon seems to deliver more continuous edge pulling at the 5.11 level without generating any truly hard move; however, several sections seemed to be solid 5.11c for several moves. A solid fun route that gets great sun.
QDs only. This 60 foot route needs half a dozen draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.
