Description

This route can be led in one or two pitches. The 1st pitch is probably 5.3, and it's so well protected that you can take your kids, grandkids and the most tentative beginner up it. The 2nd pitch has great exposure, and is as well protected as the first. The second anchor is just below the pinnacle-like top of the route and the crux is getting to the last bolt leading to the anchor. Both anchors can be seen from the base of the big gully between the two rock formations.

Location

The route starts on the East End of Youbet Jorasses at the base of the gully formed between Rhinoceros Rock and Outer Outlet. It goes straight up along side and above the huge chockstone stuck between the two Formations.

Protection

There are 10 bolts to clip and 2 bolt anchors w/chains.
Fun for short climbers. Aug 10, 2014

We did this with a single 70m as one pitch and single rope lower, barely made the ground. May 20, 2014

I did this route on Saturday and it was fun. I thought significantly easier than Innercourse, but it is in a great setting at the top. Good hardware and very nice rock on the upper half. Mike Aug 3, 2009
