Description

Crux passes the first few bolts, on reachy kinda slick holds. After that it eases up. This is a must do alternative to the last pitch of round river.

Location

From the belay ledge atop P2 of round river. Head straight up off the belays clipping bolts.

Protection

7 bolts + anchors. Mabey one thin cam for the runout on 5.3 terrain on P2 of round river.

Listed in the old 1992 Watts guide as a 5.8X, this 3rd pitch to Round River has since been well-bolted. The macro rock at the top to which the anchors are fixed looks like it could get shady over the years, so check in on it when you get to the top. There's a single-rope rap off the back-side, or if no one is on the route, a rap down the route will save you a bit of heinous scree and dirt in the shoes. Oct 12, 2009

agreed. the scree is heinous. rap the route if possible. The view from the first belay is worth the walk. Jun 30, 2010
I've never rapped this route. The thought has never crossed my mind. For a good time haul all your gear up with you and carry on to sample something on the Wombat. Mar 7, 2011
