Access Issue: Rim Rock Trail Closure Details

Description

This line starts in the chossy netherworld about 20' right (south) of "This Bone's For You". A step off a handy boulder across the trail launches you past the undercut base of the wall into a nice little crack. Work up and rightward in cracks until things peter out beneath a rotten bulge with a pair of worthless seams and a ton of lichen. Pass this via a big blind reach and a sloping shelf on the right, then step back left into lichenville above. Mantle assorted flat topped blocks to the summit of a small pinnacle a short step away from the rim. Lasso the top block of the pinnacle or stuff a couple 2"-3" cams in the slot on the backside for a belay.

The descent is a walkoff 100 yards north along the rim.

The climbing and the pro is generally quite good, but it is steeper and trickier than it looks from below, with enough choss to keep you pleasantly occupied.

Protection

Cams, stoppers, draws, and slings.

Did this 9 years ago, and having done it again, I think it is difficult for a 5.8. Still 5.8 but not easy! I suppose I am getting old.... Jun 29, 2017
