Description

This is the left bolted route on a large blank face at the base of the Northwest Face of Cyclops next or left to The Eye. Thin face moves follow a "red line" past a bolt to an incut/mantel that lead to another bolt. The moves out from this are the crux. Faces the road. Continuous and hard.

Isn't this a Woodward lead that had two bolts? As is typical of many of his routes, it was supposed to be super spooky. Would seem to me a bolt was added? Mar 20, 2006

Murf, I double checked my work, and you are correct. There are only two widely spaced bolts on this route. Thanks May 3, 2006
Two bolts is correct. FL: Darrell Hensel, repeated by Jonny Woodward. Dec 17, 2007

Does Ron Fawcett have any history with this route? Feb 7, 2008
Yes. Fawcett originally top-roped the route. It was subsequently led. The FA info for the route does state - FA, Ron Fawcett, TR. Feb 28, 2008

I have TR'd this route (mini-trax) more than a few times over the last few years. I was giving it one last run prior to leading it, since my belayer wanted to boulder at Manx, and broke off a crucial knob above the second bolt (not sure if that was last season or the year before). This is now the crux. After three more days working it I was able to do it again clean, on TR. Probably 12d now but I'll wait to rate it till I lead it, hopefully this season. Nov 12, 2013

Old update from three years ago: while working it more with the broken hold, it broke again to a horrible hold. May go but would be much harder than 12d. Need to get on it again this season I hope. Jan 21, 2018
