Do not camp on the land below and west of the crag. It is private property and is now posted. Details

Description

P1 - Start on an overhang with big moves on big holds and climb up and trend right. Climb through 15 bolts of varnished holds to a 3 bolt anchor. 5.10a.

P2 - Continue up and right to a large ledge that tops out on the wall. 5.9, 11 bolts.

Anchors for Remains to be Seen are about 10 feet back from the face and the rope runs over the edge with potential for rope drag and getting it stuck. We actually rappelled from a set six foot of chains just to the right of this route.

Protection

P115 bolts, 2-rap-hanger-plus-one-chain anchors.
P211 bolts, ring anchors.

Location

Remains to be seen is located on the left end of the wall, to the left of the crack climb Non-Technical Church Socks.

The climing is fun enough, especiialy the moves off the ground, but the routesetting/bolt placement and first pitch anchor in terms of rappel descent are terrible. I extended almost all of the clips, and reached back to remove several draws after clipping the next throughout the pitch, yet still had considerable rope drag. Bolts could have easily been placed in a logical line, and forget rapping from top of first pitch without extending the anchor over the edge.

As is, be sure to have someone follow you to clean. I climbed, and my wife decided not to so I had the glory of cleaning the pitch on rap. It is impossible to do so and avoid the rope getting woven between flakes, necessitating prussiking back to rap again in order to be able to pull the rope. Jan 30, 2015

The opener was cruiser for me (6'4") but very stout for my partner (5'7"). Seems to be height dependent. Jan 19, 2015

This was a really fun climb, I would recommend using a 70m rope. The rap to the ground was quite a stretch for 60m and you will not have enough rope if you tried to rap the route (you have to rap down and right). May 5, 2014
The first pitch wanders a bit. You will need about 8 slings to avoid heinous rope drag. Mar 24, 2014
First pitch, pretty good. Second pitch, very good. Oct 7, 2012

First move off the ground could be 10a'ish? Harder for short folks. Rest of the climb is pretty cruzer, fun climbing on delicate varnish edges. Bring some long runners as the bolts kind of zig-zag a bit. The anchors for Remains to be seen are placed way back on the upper ledge and seemed like a recipe for a stuck rope. We rapped off some anchors I spotted up and climbers right. (further right than cosmic connection, not sure what route this is, it's not on MP or in the guide. Looks cool!). One rope to mid anchor then ground. Sep 15, 2012

didn't feel like a 10a at all. Maybe a 5.9 move or two at the beginning. watch out for your ropes coming down. we did a double rope rappel with 2 60 meter ropes but be careful, ours got stuck. two shorter rappels would be a lot better. Feb 14, 2011
