Description

A fun little route to do if you've got time after finishing Queen Vic. Pretty much sport, but I think I placed 1 small cam near the start.

Location

On the south side of Queen Vic there are 2 bolted routes. This is the right most one. Well camoflauged, so hard to spot. The first bolt is up a ways.

Protection

Draws, 1 each to 0.75 Camalot.

The first pitch is bolted. I bailed halfway up the second pitch due to unsafe rock quality. Tons of loose rock and blocks to the left of the crack. Climb at your own risk. Mar 22, 2017

I don't remember seeing any bolts other than the ones on the line 15 feet left of where that beta photo was taken. Although I did see a piton 20 feet up on this line. Then there are bolts to follow? Nov 17, 2013

Does any one know what the left sport route is called? I climbed it the other day because it was really cold/windy at the saddle and on queen vic. The route started with pulling a little bulge, a short chimeny followed by a pretty large runout section and finish with placing a few small cams to a bolted anchor. I thought it was in the 5.9 range with the crux being the chimney. 4 bolts with small pro, 80ft

Edit: Looks like we climbed the first pitch of Victoria's Secret. First pitch 5.9, second pitch is an OW 5.10 that joins up with the regular route. Jan 29, 2012
