Access Issue: Rim Rock Trail Closure Details

Description

Ascend the corner left of "Pumcat" to a ledge. Sneak up the right side of a tottering pillar of loose blocks, then plug a crack until you can reach right and clip the anchors on "Pumcat". Lead it if you want the "traditional" experience (and risk), or toprope it (with the belayer standing well to one side) if you don't feel like cheating death.

Protection

Standard gear rack, bolt anchor with rings atop "Pumcat".

I gave this route a star if it is done as a top-rope. I would not give it a star as a lead. The first half lacks protection. The upper half has a good crack for pro. The climbing is fun. May 8, 2013
