Hiliter is a bit spicy, with a pretty good run to the first bolt. Best to know you're solid, or have a good set of spotters and a bouldering pad to fall back on (joke intended).

On the northwest side of The Wedge, climb up edges and crystals past two bolts to the top.


Only bolted line on the northwest side of The Wedge.


Two bolts, 2-bolt anchor/rap on top.

I would agree that the first bolt is high but if you commit, it's all there. The rating is accurate for the Pinnacle Peak area old school ratings. The most difficult part is the first bolt and after that it's a cruise. Feb 24, 2014

There probably was a time when this was an approachable 5.7. Alas, the rock is crumbly, and the holds have all been snapped off the beginning of the route. If you're not quite comfortable climbing 5.11 slab, bring a ladder. You'll need it to get to the first bolt. Oct 28, 2013

Not sure this really deserves an R anymore. Tricky getting to first bolt, then cruise past one more on big holds to top. Jan 10, 2010
