Description Suggest change

This route is directly above the anchors on Hollow Flake. [Leonard Coyne in 1977. He led it with only a couple bolts and got bits of gear in the cracks. That was a very bold lead, considering it now sports 10 bolts. It's almost 120 feet from the belay on top of Hollow Flake to the anchors, so plan on rappelling with 2 ropes or use a 70 meter cord. A third pitch, a short 5.9ish lead, goes over the headwall above past a bolt and then works up cracks to the summit.] From the top of hollow flake, clip the first bolt about 8 feet up. Continue up over a small overhang (protects well with a #3 TCU under it and another bolt on top) past 10 more bolts and a number of horizontal "ribs" to the anchors. Probably a little over-protected, some of the bolts are less than 6-8 feet apart. There is a bit of a runout on easy rock between the last bolt and the anchors. From the anchors, either rap back to the top of hollow flake with one rope, or continue to the top past a single bolt on the headwall above. This is a fun climb.

Protection Suggest change

12-13 draws, #3 TCU, and something for the anchor.
