Description

The BEST 5.10a at Mentmore, this route should get climbed far more often than it does. It follows a shallow, incipient crack system up a shallow scoop in the cliff face, with fun climbing, good rock, and so on. Go do it! Clipping the 3rd bolt can feel quite hard, though, so this is not a good choice as a first 5.10 lead.

Location

The second boltline left of the obvious, jumbly "Why Crack". Look for a shallow "scoop" in the cliff band. Walk or lower off; don't rap, ropes get stuck easily.

Protection

5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Seems easier since the loose rock was removed. Third bolt is still loose and will not stay tight. Mar 13, 2016

Tightened the third bolt today, I have been meaning to do it for months. Should be good for now but may still need to be replaced. Jun 3, 2012

Is the bolt loose inside the sandstone or is it just the hanger? In other words, can it be tightened with a wrench or does the whole bolt need replacement? I know I won't be able to make it there soon but this information could be good for anyone who might be able to repair it in knowing what they need to take to the crag (just a wrench or the whole bolt kit?).
