Pilgrim has some great climbing and mild (safe) runouts, but in my opinion it is not nearly as classic as comparable routes on the Bulge wall proper. Begin by climbing the first pitch of Pseudo Sidetrack and belaying at the obvious tree (as of 2003 this tree is just barely hanging on for its life). Look up and see a lone bolt slightly right (High Noon), and a pair of bolts slightly left (Pilgrim). Make difficult moves past these and head up past an optional small stopper placement and two more bolts. The crux (and best moves on the route) comes just past the fourth bolt -- it looks improbable but the edges keep appearing. It has a two bolt anchor with links.

P.S.: High Noon is a total sandbag at 5.11a, whereas Pilgrim felt right on at 10d - a good way to put up a TR if you're near your limit.


A fixed pin and four bolts to a two-bolt anchor.
