Description

Just to the right of Razor's Edge - the nut/cam anchor has been replaced by bolts (a piteous trend). 5 bolts lead up sustained thin edging to connect with the finish of Razor's Edge.

Location

Rappel off Razor's Edge.

Protection

5 bolts, bolted anchor

The FA was by Scott and Robin Erler. Apr 30, 2009
This climb was a fun challenge. The crux for me was after clipping the first bolt to just before the third bolt; no single hardest move, it seemed to be continuous thin, razor-sharp moves. After that, the holds get bigger. The third bolt needs replacing, it is only partially inserted. I backed up the bolt with two small wires. The rest of the route was much easier, but the 5.9 hand/fist crack, where it joins "Razor's Edge" was a bit of a grunt.

The belay stations at the start and end were bolts and chains, no need for pro there. Jun 8, 2015

A piteous trend indeed, Chris. A morally painful peccant piteous practice. Jun 22, 2015

Good moves, 3rd bolt still pulled out a bit but that's the easiest climbing, some cams needed for 5.9 crack finish. Dec 11, 2017
