Description

Bolton's first 5.13 and a fine one indeed. I don't even know if it's been repeated since Peter did it (probably has but I don't know for sure).

Work up just right of the water-worn black rock through a series of sharp incut crimps. At the 4th bolt, step right and power up through a great V6 boulder problem. A few hard deadpoints gains a stance at the left-rising traverse crack. From here, you can continues straight up to finish on Encryption for a 13a finish, or clip bolt 7 and traverse left with no good feet until directly below a bulge... pull straight up through the awesome redpoint crux to better holds and a lower-off anchor at the top of Firewall for a 13b finish.

Steppin' Razor Direct 5.14a: After pulling the V6 crux at the 5th bolt, move left and power through very small edges and crimps. Regain the original route below the bulge, clipping the left bolt.

Location

Just right of the zig-zagging crack of Solarium

Protection

Bolts. In the traverse at the top, only clip the first bolt on the traverse. The second one is for Dweezil/Direct.

Got on this yesterday and while it is sharp, the sequences and moves are as good as anything else on the steep wall. Sep 25, 2018
