Description

There seems to be some confusion about SD. The route listed on the upper tier is not SD. It may refer to one of Dan Hare's lines or one of Joe Desimones'. SD is the further right of two routes, both about 100 yards right of Cool Thing on the lower tier. SD starts on very nice, almost chocolate-colored stone. Mantle up on a small ledge to clip the first bolt. The crux comes in the subsequent ten feet. After the fourth clip, the rock becomes sharper and more friable but climbs on decent edges. There is indeed a double bolt anchor at the top. These welded cold shuts, although solid enough, should probably be replaced with more durable gear.

Location

It is 100 yards right of Cool Thing.

Protection

Eight quickdraws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.
