Description Suggest change

A long, bolted arete that leads to The Terrace. A fine approach to Blazing-Saddles if Borderline is taken.

P1 - 5.10c (45m) Starts just left of Phillistine Groove (the dirty looking corner system) on the forested ledge the leads to the start of Borderline. The first section is up steep and broken rock and the bolts are plainly visible from the approach trail. Pull through the steep rock (5.9+) and onto a long, low angled arete. Balancy, well protected climbing (5.10c) leads to a bolted anchor

P2 - 5.11a (15m) - Cruxy climbing through two bolts right above the belay. I ended up pulling into the groove for 10 feet and then back out onto the face for the last bolt. After clipping the last bolt, more hard moves on the face lead to the anchor. You could stay out on the face, but there weren't any bolts and it seemed natural to step right.

Location Suggest change

Starts on the ledge below the Terrace (about 50 feet right of the start of Borderline)

Descent - Rap the route with one rope via two rappels. These anchors are the common descent from the Terrace, so expect company on busy days.
