Description

Face climbing and pinching on crystals between horizontal cracks. Top out on a vertical crack. Moves tend to be delicate and awkward with good rests in between on the horizontals. The crux comes early on so pre-clipping the first bolt from the boulder is not a bad idea.

The route gets its name because we were climbing the day before Jeff's wedding. After getting beat up by some harder routes, we went to climb Le Petit Arbre. Upon rappelling I decided to give the line a try on TR. It proved excellent and appeared unclimbed (Skip Harper Webpage, Fat Crack Country Book), so Shane came to join us for the lead. Quite a memorable bachelor party.

Location

This is just left of Le Petit Arbre on Lower Blair I. Look for the 2 bolts to crack finish. Can walk off the ledge, rap off the ledge, or better yet continue up Nick's Loose Flake Variation and rap all the way to the ground from that anchor with a 60 meter rope.

Protection

Gear to 2" and 2 quickdraws for the 2 bolts. Gear anchor. 0.5" pieces work well on this route.
