Description

Boardwalk is a classic 5.8, one of the best routes of its grade in the High Country.

Basically, wander up lower-angle terrain on huge horizontals to a prominent rail that angles up and right towards the arete. Follow this rail to a vertical crack. Continue up and trend left to a corner with a bush at the base. Either belay near this bush or continue up (the route is easily done in one pitch). Climb the corner and trend towards the obvious weakness in the roof above (crux). Above the roof, horizontals lead to the top.

Location

The route is located almost in the dead center of the main tier. Look for a large dead tree and a trampled, sandy area and try to spot rap rings, maybe 50 feet up.

To descend, either 1) make a double-rope rappel off the rings at the top, 2) do two single-rope rappels, or 3) do a single-rope rap from the top and downclimb easy fifth-class terrain to the bottom.

Protection

The pro is excellent in horizontals and some vertical crack features. It takes a wide range of gear. Carry a single rack of stoppers and cams from the blue TCU to the #2 Camalot.
