Access Issue: Bad Bolt Submission Form Details


This is the finely positioned arete to the left of Slick and Superficial. It is climbable on all but the coldest Wyoming days.

It was an old Bob Scarpelli-Tim Tuola top rope project from the '90s. Bob urged me to lead this and gave permission for the bolts to be added. The first ascent climbed with natural gear placements in the crack, bolts were added later after a few locals at the time agreed it would be nice to have a nice hardish sport line for the upcoming young strong pad people to get hooked on tying in at Vedauwoo as well.

Climb it how you like, gear, bolts or gear and bolts more style points and an extra cheers if you place the gear, congrats either way on sending this classic line.


Above the tempest for pad people and 12' left of the classic "slick and superficial" for those who have the climbing guide.


Bolts to small hands gear. If you skip bolts a small shaky nut at the bottom and a poor piece behind your heel at the crux protect till the better crack at 35' please consider a pad over the ankle breaker botton.
Natural anchor on top.
