Description

AKA: Destination Unknown. This is a really fun clip-up with varied, high quality climbing on edges and slopers. P1 starts with clipping a bolt and then some sinker hand jams for a few moves to gain a small bulge. Traverse left and onto the arete with a fun, defined crux. You can combine P1 with P2, which is bouldery, easy .10 slab and edge climbing up to a nice belay ledge that gets late afternoon shade. P3 has tightly spaced bolts in a shallow dihedral to an arete with a killer softball sloper. This pitch is fun, hard .10 insecurity way off the deck. The first and last pitch are really fun and the rock is bomber.

Location

Starts the bottom of the Syringe just left of the gully separating it from the Severity Butress.

Protection

Bolts mixed with lots of pika hangers. I think we had about 16 draws and a few of those were long runners. P1 anchors are tat but you can rap from the bottom of P3 with a 70m rope.

Can link 1-2, or 2-3. The bulge on p1 feels committing. p2 is much easier than the others, but has some substantial runouts on easier terrain (hard moves are well protected though) The route is great, I do it almost every time I go to ibex. Jan 22, 2016

The Pika hangers could use an upgrade. Not sure if holds have broken off, but the last pitch felt the hardest by far on the route. Jan 26, 2015
