DescriptionThis bolted, moderate line adds some variety and choice to the few well-protected and very well-traveled routes on this popular wall.
Pitch #1: To the left of the main cleft or dihedral which is to the left of the popular Italian Arete, climb up a slight spur of rock passing two small roofs on mostly big, climber-friendly holds. Continue to the top of the wall to a two-bolt belay. 5.7.
Carefully rappel the route or lower with a 70m rope. Walking off may be safer and recommended. Rappel x 2 via midway ledge to right won't leave you hanging.
LocationThis is on the East Face of the Salt Lake City Slips. An obvious bolted long line climbs between the Italian Arete and Forgotten Ambition (I think mostly a forgotten route, as well?).
This is a long route....longer than the average sport route in the vicinity and elsewhere in BCC. Descent can be achieved by walking off or by rappelling with a 70m rope (two ropes is probably better). Many of the bolts are glue-in stainless steel, so if you choose to rappel the route with one 50m or one 60m rope x two that would be yet another option.
