Description

Cool new route on the right side of the dome. Like all the other routes nearby, a good deal of wandering and traversing is involved. Kind of a shock that the whole route went at such a moderate grade when every other route on that side of the wall is 5.11!

Location

Between Sausalito Archie's Overhang and Third World. The first 2 bolts on Third World are grey camo hangers on white/gold rock and pretty easy to find, and Cyclone starts up the thin crack about 25' left of the first bolt. Bolts on Cyclone are very hard to see from the ground.

Protection

Pro to 3.5" including thin nuts, 8 pro bolts over 3 pitches. Two bolt anchors atop each pitch, with mussy hooks at the top of p2 and p3. Two single-rope raps with a 60m reach the deck (watch rope ends!).

Fun climb, thanks to the first ascentionists! Appreciated the bolts given the friable/dirty rock (and knobs that might break). Pitches 1 and 2 easily link. Jun 14, 2012
