Access Issue: Bolt Failures - Donations Help Details
Accelerated corrosion that targets stainless steel bolts (SCC) has caused multiple failures, including both anchor bolts on a route that a climber was being lowered off of. Please read the BOLTS note on the main page. You can also help the cause by visiting the Bivy during your stay and giving QX some reds, whites, or if youre feeling generous, some BLUES!
Start up small sidepulls and pockets. When you reach your first slight overhang, pull your first minor crux around the right side. Follow small holds and tricky feet up to the first roof. There are jugs up just above your head, but the angle makes for a strenuous pull. A good right-foot heel hook can make things easier. Getting pumped yet? The angle remains vertical as you approach your second, more intimidating roof. Using big underclings, get your face right up under the roof, and lean back to spot your thank-you-god jugs. Clench, swing a leg up, mantel, and you're done. Cruise the last 10 feet to the anchors.
Approach for Long Lane. Across the monobridge, the face directly in front of you contains many sport routes. Sky Ladder is the furthest to the left (I think).
