Description Suggest change

Haley's Comet ascends the arĂȘte on the far left edge of the Manure Pile Buttress. Fun face climbing past 4 good bolts to a 2-bolt anchor shared with Jump for Joy.

Although the route is bolted, it is not really a "sport" climb, as there are only 4 protection bolts in 65 feet. A fall before clipping the second bolt would likely result in a ground fall. As such, I have given it a "PG-13" rating.

If you are not up for leading the route, it is possible to scramble up the gully to the left with a section of 4th class terrain, do one single rope rap down to the anchors. One more rap gets you to the ground.

4 bolts to 2-bolt anchor.
