Description

Fifty feet of delicate face climbing leads to an exposed summit. The crux involves a few tenuous moves past the 2nd bolt.

Descend using the rappel route of "Permanent Income Hypothesis."

Location

Located on the upper headwall of the formation that is home to "Permanent Income Hypothesis." The route actually starts from the saddle formed by this formation and the one in front of it.

The two ways to approach "Invisible Hand" are to either climb "Free to Choose" and scramble or climb "Permanent Income Hypothesis" and rappel to the start.

Protection

4 bolts to 2-bolt anchor. All bolts are 1/2" Rawl-style expansion bolts.

This can be easily TRd by rapping down from the top of Permanent Income Hypothesis. To lead it, you either need to stick clip the first bolt or to bring a couple of pieces of gear to make an anchor at the base - a fall without an anchor before the first bolt would be very serious.

This worthwhile route is cleaning up with successive ascents but still features a bit of lichen (the main holds are lichen-free though). Feb 20, 2008

This one is an added bonus for getting to the top of "Hypothesis," and worth the approach. The face is still very lichen-laden, which adds a little sketch point to the rating, so don't get skiffed by the thin crux after the first bolt. Jul 30, 2007
