Description

Cold Fusion is a good mixed route of bolts and gear with the crux being located on the first pitch.

P1: Follow bolts up a steep slab angling left, this is the crux. (5.10c)

P2: Climb a gear protected corner straight up to a small overhang. Pull the overhang and continue past a bolt to the anchor. (5.9)

P3: Follow another bolted pitch to a ledge and anchor. (5.10b)

Location

This route is located on the west side of Glacier Point. Approach from the abandoned dump site at the farthest east end of Curry Village. There is a huge 5.0 corner just to the left of this route, look for the bolts on the first pitch. Rap the route to descend

Protection

Quickdraws and a standard rack of stoppers and cams up to 2" or 3". All the anchors have bolts
