Description

this route is excellent. The first part is the hardest, the second part is more run out and has good holds. The moves around bolts 2,3,4 may require some time to figure it out, manteling is a good idea!

Location

the left side of the prominet arete you first get to.

Protection

QD's , you may want a few slings to tie of knobs.

Before the crux move below the 3rd bolt, you can move right 2 feet and reach up and clip the 3rd bolt; then return left and pull the tricky move with confidence. Feb 16, 2009

I only found 8 bolts on this route, contrary to ST... Did I miss one? Mar 18, 2009

Great mantle at 3rd bolt crux, eases off a bit after that - with a few easier, yet attention grabbing mantles up higher.

Don't miss the little potato chip crimp for your left hand at the 3rd bolt crux.

Run out 20'+ on easier (5.7-.9) terrain up top Mar 23, 2009

9 bolts. Not sure where slings would protect what is not already protected by bolts. Oct 30, 2012

  • *Beta warning** -you can sling a giant knob at the top to reduce a bit of the final runout if you want.

Another classic Valley example that bolts do not equal a sport climb. It is a long route and has some distance between them. It's more mental, as when you complete a mantel there often is a bolt close by. I agree, it is nicely bolted though. My partner transitioning from sport climbing to trad that week had some major challenges leading it. Aug 19, 2018
