This is not worth a special trip but is a feather in your cap on the way to achieving the elusive Mount-Boner-in-a-day. It would be a fun beginner lead except for a bit of a runout between the last two bolts.

Go past the big roof on Mt. Boner, and locate a detached pillar above the slab. This route ascends the slab directly below the detached pillar past three bolts, and then directly up the right side of the pillar. The last bolt is about halfway up the pillar. There are two bolts (or coldshuts) at the top for a TR.


Same as for everything on Mt. Boner - a few QDs and something for the two-bolt anchor.


The anchor consists of a bolt with hanger & chain and a bolt with a non-welded coldshut that is not tight to the rock. It may just need a wrench to tighten it. Nov 6, 2001

We used the anchors on the left (red in the beta photo), above the crack, rather than the ones to the right of the detached pillar. We finished straight up the pillar with the anchor there and led to a lot more fun; great moves with just enough feet. Jun 10, 2013
