Description

Silver Surfer is a short route beginning left of Beefeater. It begins in a chimney then goes up a left-angling crack up to bolted anchors with webbing. You can't miss it. You can easily rap from here or continue on your choice of two bolted routes, one 12a and the other 13b.

The protection is excellent, the chimney is funky, the move into the crack is fun, and the crack itself is good.

I'd add your own webbing.

Protection

Standard rack to #3 Camalot; no small stoppers are needed.

No more webbing at anchor. 2 bolts, chains, and a beefy ring equalizing it all. As good as it gets. Thanks for those who replaced this anchor. Sep 5, 2017

Fun route as a warm up for Beefeater or Currey's Diagonal. The anchor is pretty wanky but ok. Jul 26, 2015

Short, but worthwhile. The easiest route on this section of Holdout. Jun 16, 2005
