Must Register! Private Property-The Pond, Atlantis and Mine Area Details

Description

Climb the arete past several bolts. The crux is near the bottom, making a reachy move up and left to a nice pocket, then up and right on smaller holds to a decent rest on the arete. Cruise on nice holds to the top.

Location

Located a bit upstream, just past the dam, on the south side (opposite of the road) on a nice arete.

Protection

Well bolted.

I don't know if the bolts have been moved since 2011, but they seemed thoughtfully placed to me. **Spoiler Alert** First was easy to clip from the ledge to the right and the second, from the big pocket on the face to the left. The climbing was splendid! My favorite in the area for sure. Dec 2, 2013

Just a note to say I have never known Manny to bolt something based on ego; he is a very thoughtful route developer. Dec 13, 2011

I pretty much put the bolts where I could hang on and clip them. If someone else has a suggestion about where I can improve my ego-based drilling, send me a pm. Promise I'll look at changing if it's a better placement. I worked and worked to make sure it was safe. Still scares me everytime I lead it though.

Laurel is shorter than me. You can see evidence on the photo that she can do the crux safely. Dec 13, 2011

I found this to be a really nice route. I didn't have any issues with the bolting, but I'm 6'1" so the crux down low was not as much as an issue as it probably is with shorter people. Oct 15, 2011

A crux that's definitely easier if 6' or taller. We too thought the protection to be ego-based at the start, consequently not "well bolted". Apr 17, 2010

This route does, at first, seem a bit heady. I know, because I also saw what you did (a year ago or so). I went back with Laurel (last Sat) and, really, it is safe. A key bomber left hand pocket (can be reached from the ledge, with some effort) lets you safely clip the second bolt. From there a heady (safe) move to good holds lets off to a nice climb to the top.

Tried to lead this little gem today. After the first bolt I was completely shut down by lack of nerves to get to the second. Ledge fall...ground fall highly probable. Humid day mid-summer with funky and committing moves up the arete.

Lieback (check) feet up (check) possible mangler (check) = no go! Too nervous. Maybe next time.

I'm blaming it on the weather. Couldn't possibly be me, right?

On a side note, looks like a great line Manny. Jul 19, 2008
