Description

Ken Trout and Kirk Miller were early explorers on the River Wall. They left their mark on the wall back in the '70s by aiding out the roof on this route and leaving a rap sling over the lip. Fast forward to today - the sling is gone, the roof is free, and the protection modern. From the ledge and anchor atop "Put In", clip a long sling on the old 1/4" bolt at the base of the corner. This is strictly a directional piece to keep the rope out of your way. Stand up and get the first modern clip. Stem to the roof, then crank out across the roof past a couple more bolts. Turn the lip, get established, then clip the anchors on the lip. All in all a short and airy exercise.

Protection

Four bolts (three modern, one an ancient 1/4" used for a directional) to a two bolt anchor.

I cleaned the route and added a couple chains to the quick links so that it doesn't twist your rope. May 30, 2006

Confusing and really interesting. This route feels more like a test of technique than anything else. Cleaning on rappel is not the best option, I would have rather reclimbed it on toprope follow than rapped off. Oct 15, 2016
