Due to floods, this area is unfortunately closed.
DescriptionThis superb power route climbs the third route from the left side of the crag. Reach the base by rock hopping across the river just below the Buttonrock Resevoir spillway. The furtherst left two lines are New Horizon and Lost Horizon, a bolted arete and an insane finger crack, respectively.
The next line, BFAP, climbs the right side of this constant angle overhanging section of stone on unrelenting powerful slopers and edges. One leaves the security of the initial ramp and right corner launching onto the overhanging face after clipping the first two bolts. Fire immediately into the powerful crux, a big move to a small incut. One amazingly consistent move after another bring one to the top. Stellar.
ProtectionSix bolts. The next to last had fixed biner, and the last was coldshut. Also, there is webbing on blocks above for rapping.
Per 106973956 2 bolts were added to the start with the permission of the FA.
