Description

This is the right hand route on the QOB pinnacle. The first bolt is 20ft up and can't be clipped until you do a mid 5.10 move. You can place a #1 Camalot in a pocket to the left.

There is some interesting movement, but there are number of awkward and sharp sections. The crux is near the top using arete pinches and side pulls with bad feet.

Location

This is the right hand route on the QOB pinnacle.

Protection

4-5 bolts, optional #1 Camalot.

Technical with multiple cruxes. Don't blow the difficult first clip, the fall would suck. May 25, 2008

Definitely stick clipped the first bolt. Some actual climbing on less than inspiring rock to get to said bolt. Sep 19, 2010

Some awkward thought provoking climbing on this one. Weird barndooring with some attempts at flagging against the air. Probably not harder than 10c but not exactly straightforward. May 6, 2012

Extremely awkward and definitely not a warmup route. May 6, 2015

Agree with all the comments above: awkward, and scary first clip and pumpy. I used a 0.75 link cam in one of the pockets below the first bolt, but that made the move to the first bolt harder. A lower bolt would be a welcome addition to the route. Maybe I'll get around to putting one in someday.... Oct 24, 2016

Very, very hard for the grade unless you are 6+ ft tall. First bolt is stupidly high. Felt way harder than the 10d and 11as to the left - and not by a little bit. Very thin, and sharp on top of awkward. 1 star only because 0 isn't an option. May 7, 2018
