Access Issue: Seasonal Closure - 2018 Update Details

Description

This is the easier left variation of a three some that starts in a small nook of sorts up a slab.

Start up as for all 3 variations past 2 bolts, veer left on easier slabbing past 4 more bolts. Step over a small overlap (crux) and get the anchors with Mussy hooks.

You could add a bit of variety on naturally protected terrain just to the left of the start...or start on the line to the left. There are lots of options especially with routes so close together.

Others have provided a name, Summer Nights. This may have been climbed by Ed Ash in the 1980s.

Location

This is the second from the left on the northwest aspect of this crag. It starts in a nook and branches left.

Protection

9 bolts. Possibly bring a bit of small gear if you do the left start.

I think the bulge at the top is awkward. 5.9 IMHO.
One could also start this route with the 4 bolts on the blunt arete to the right of the tree scar. Oct 8, 2009

I'm glad I brought a couple of cams on this route, as there is bit of runout on some parts. The new guidebook lists this as a mixed route, recommending some small gear to 1".

EDIT: I see that this route description has you start with the other 2 routes to the right, but the best way to start is in the right-facing corner between Reunion and Quicksilver. This is a much more enjoyable way to climb the natural line, but doesn't use the bolts to the right, hence why gear is recommended. May 5, 2018
