Description

Slog up some lower angled rock to the left of a buttress past two bolts (which we didn't clip) to a narrow ledge covered with small, loose rocks.

Clip a bolt about chest height on an arete and start up in earnest. Work some pockets and sidepulls and surmount the first, smaller roof. Immediately start whining about the next, somewhat-more-intimidating roof and then flop up over it. Rest.

Continue up through the bolt above you (there is another bolt to the left - different route: Unknown 5.10+). Enjoy the killer pockets.

Join up with the route to the right at the penultimate bolt and finish at the chains.

Location

Starts to the left of a rounded buttress with two bolted routes (Unknown 5.9 and Unknown 5.10a).

Approach as to Hard Rock Wall, when you get to the top of the slope, head left to new Hard Rock West area. Continue west past the terraced area to newer climbs.

Protection

8 or 10 bolts, depending on whether you clip the first two in the lower-angled terrain.

This route was described to me as a 5.10d. Comparing it with Monkey Meet on Escape Buttress this route seems easier. (I onsighted it, which should tell those who know me all they need to know :-)

Anyway, take the rating I gave it with a grain of salt. Sep 2, 2007
