This is the bolt ladder that takes you to the Peeler Direct Route.

About 12 Bolts and bolts with no hangers. Every other bolt has a bolt hanger. There is a two bolt belay about 8 bolts up, then goes about 4 more bolts to the Thin crack of Peeler Direct.


Draws, wire nuts for the bolts without hangers, or use a Pika Keyhole hanger.
Sadly, this unnecessary pitch bypasses some very good climbing on the original Black Peeler. Jul 5, 2010
agreed. The flake and ramp on the first pitch to move out to Peeler Direct is good climbing. Jul 6, 2010

I'm confused about the bolt that's three bolts away from the second bolt, that's near the bolts at the bolted anchor. Apr 14, 2016

Start at the hollow flake below the river/bolt ladder. 2 bolts, one of them spinners, 3 rivets. A hook move onto Small cams in a hollow flake, and a #2 ball-nut or cam-hook up top before the anchors. 2 places mandatory free (easy 5.6 mantles). Great practice top-stepping on a fun but really short pitch. Jan 17, 2018
