Portions of the approach and cliffs of this area are on private land. Details

Description

Climb past tufas and cool flowstone features to reach a 4' roof. Powerful moves will lead past this feature to a perplexing and difficult traverse leading right to the high blocky arete. Follow arete to the top.

Location

Starts 15 feet right of Couples Fear Factor.

Protection

6 bolts to chains. The first bolt is as low as the rock allows. Easy to reach but use a stick clip if you are uncomfortable.

Myself and my partner in this project have quite a few routes under our belts and deliberated extensively about the bolt locations. We were forced to strike a balance between locations where the movement dictated an ideal bolt placement and the quality of the rock in those locations. If you watch, you will see the bolts are quite close together. You will also, hopefully, notice that this is not a brain-dead, eat a sandwich while belaying kind of climb. Enjoy, and if you find this a bit spicy, be extra careful/safe. Jul 28, 2015

2 stars. Unfortunately how this line is bolted it makes the route scary/dangerous. There is no reason why at all that the FA'ers couldn't have moved the bolts to make it safer. But whatever. It's not my money/hardware. Just kinda sad. Good moves though. Dec 12, 2011

Man after 4th bolt is where the line starts.

Was on this line last weekend. Left four draws on it. Not to be considered booty. Dec 5, 2011
