Description

50 Yard Dash starts off the angled boulder, working over a small roof for the first clip. This may be a long reach for some with a potentially bad groundfall. Those who don’t like the risk should stick clip it. Once established over the roof, run the wonderful face for multiple clips. At mid-height, place a #2 cam in a horizontal crack, then mantle onto a ledge, reach up to a high bolt (micro cam available just below if wanted) and do the awesome final moves to the anchor. Wonderful route.

Location

As you complete the big slog up the trail from the road, just past Opening Ceremony Wall, you will come to a distinct apex with trees and an angled boulder at the west end (left side) of Olympic Wall. There are three routes found in this alcove. The right hand route is 50 YD.

Protection

7 bolts to double bolt anchor. Bring a 2.5" SLCD to protect a runout section.
