Description

There's a bolted route to the left of the first pitch (the Apron) of Stairway to Heaven. This could be ice, rock or mixed depending on conditions. It's probably 5.9/5.10 if rock and WI3 if ice ever forms there. Like the rest of Provo Canyon, the rock quality is abysmal. Tread lightly on those nubs with your crampons...

Protection

Four bolts, chain anchors (possibly suspect)

Short route, but worth doing. Fully bolted sport route, though it can be hard to see the bolts from the ground at times.

There is another bolted mixed line to the right of this route, closer to the regularly forming ice routes. Oct 3, 2013

Great beginner mixed route. Lots of cool torques and pick placements. Jan 28, 2018
