Access Issue: Seasonal Closure / 2021 Update - reopening Details


This was originally done as a traditionally protected climb without any bolts for years, if not decades.

You start where the climber's eye says there may be a natural line connecting cracks. The original protection was small cams (Aliens). You aim for the corner/crack above.

Sadly, this was retrobolted in 2009 with 4 bolts. Some traverse right to join Lightning Strike at its sixth bolt. Now ~10 bolts are easily clippable from the first 60 feet of this line. Sadly, there are 3 bolts before where you would get your first piece of protection. This was an established trad line called The Crack Where Sun Don't Shine.  It is now more commonly done as the sport route Rain Check.


Pro to #4 Camalot, lightly protected. Now, it's overly retrobolted.
