Description

This route is described in Rossiter's Boulder Canyon guidebook and noted in his excellent topos on p.183 & in Boulder Climbs North on p. 119. Its depicted 2 bolts has led to some consternation by those seeking to just climb until you see them...as we did on our first run up Cosmosis, years ago. So, this entry is listed for clarification & warning. It's best to TR the pitch. Don't expect a soft 10a either. Funky rock. Sketchy, if any, gear. Maybe Dan was pretty smart....

Location

This is the climb on the arete near the 3rd pitch of Cosmosis near the top of Bell Buttress.

Protection

No bolts. RPs and TCUs, I've heard, hmmm. TR for mortals like me.
