Description

This route ascends to the second bolt on Intimidator and then steps right to gain another line of bolts. The climbing is very similar to Intimidator in that it has sidepulls, crimpers, and occasional jugs. Continue up the bolt line to a slightly overhanging section. A couple of difficult moves here allow access to the upper slab section. Like the other routes on this wall, commit and run up the slab to the anchors. There is a 2 bolt anchor at the top. There are various options to rappel back to the base, all involving bolts, chains, and/or quicklinks.

Location

This route ascends to the second bolt on Intimidator and then steps right to gain another line of bolts.

Protection

6 bolts on route, and a 2 bolt anchor. Be sure to make third clip, high ground-fall potential onto sharp ledge below.

Climber is on Lasting Impessions. Between him and rope is False Impressions. Rope strands on Lethal Weapon and Intimidator. Terminator is just right Intimidator.

[Hide Comment] Recently the ASCA replaced bolts 2-5 with 1/2x2.75" SS. The first bolt is new looking, and the last is a funky-looking glue-in. The anchors were also replaced and have mussy hooks on them for lowering. Jul 29, 2011
