Description

Ascend a ramp and make the crux move(s) by stepping right around the arete edge to a ramp where a series of bolts leads to the anchors. The straight-up option is substantially more difficult and not recommended but, due to the location of the protection, doable.

Location

A few feet downhill and to the left of the starts to Time to Power and Shipwreck.

Protection

5 Bolts. Two bolt anchor.

[Hide Comment] I would not recommend this route to a budding 5.8 leader. It may be fun, but it is dangerous. It feels quite insecure making the 2nd clip, feels more like 5.9 passing it. Then there is considerable run-out after the 3rd clip, just don't fall, the arete may sever your rope. Otherwise it is a decent route. Mar 14, 2017

[Hide Comment] Small holds and heady for a 5.8 warm-up. Clipping 2 is a little far reach from a comfortable spot. Getting to the 3rd is a little heady. Wrap around the arete and there’s a crack to the left. Be confident in friction rock to get up on the slab. Belayer can’t see climber after 3rd bolt. I would call it 5.8+ b/c holds are small and crux requires thinking. 5 bolts. Jul 25, 2018
