Description

Crux is 25 feet from the ground on the first pitch. It's mostly much easier than 5.7. I call it "sustained 5.2." First pitch is a full rope length. This route is not a sport climb. It's an adventure route, which means the bolts are widely spaced. Designed to be a direct line to the summit. Expect 20 to 30 ft run outs up high. All the other routes have 80 ft belay stations for sport. Lots of ways to get down if you know the area.

Location

Right up the center of Hyperion Slab.

Protection

P1 - 5 bolts (2-ring Fixe anchor)

P2 - 2 bolts

P3 - 2 bolts.

The crux is well protected, but expect 15 - 20 run outs above.
