Description

This is a worthwhile alternative to the second pitch of Le Petit Arbre. Take the first pitch of that route to the giant ledge. Scoot the belay over about 20' to a nice hand size crack with a large flake just to the left of that crack. Ascend either the crack itself (for the full valued 7) or use the flake on the upper portion (probably somewhere at 6) to a set of bolted anchors. Both of worthwhile, but utilizing only the hand crack is definitely the more aesthetic way of ascending the route.

Location

This route is located on the ledge that marks the start to the second pitch of Le Petit Arbre, just 20' to the left of the finish of Le Petit Arbre.

Protection

Several hand-sized pieces. Bolted anchors are there for rapping.

Bolts seemed tight to me. The rock is typical of the more crystalline Vedauwoo rock, and so the crystals interfere a bit with the three "tripod" points on the hangers. Apr 26, 2012

I was up here today (10/16/11), and the bolts are still a tad loose. The climber's right bolt is looser, but both hangers are loose.

Top Rope Hero, is it possible you were on a different route? These bolts were definitely not bomber bolts. Oct 17, 2011

Someone must've tightened/replaced those bolts; I was up there last weekend (Sept. of 2011) and they were bomber. Sep 28, 2011

Rap gets you all the way to the ground on a 60m. Jun 7, 2010
I was just up there yesterday (9/20/09) and both of the bolts at the top seemed a little loose. Just a heads up to plan on setting an anchor when you get to the top. Sep 21, 2009
