Description

Same first pitch as "Batteries Not Included" and so same caveat applies here -- i.e. don't bother with the chimney and get into the upper area via "Adios" or "Sublime".

Pitch Two: Sport with optional gear up high. 9 bolt low angle face to bulges to a ledge. Continue up a detached boulder then up the face to the top. 2 shut single line rap to the top of the gully.

Would add that it's probably easiest to head over to the top anchors of "Sublime Line" and descend from that.

A fun warm up climb for "Batteries" and while short it is also an excellent route to take pictures of anyone on "Batteries" from.

Location

Same as "Batteries" and the line of bolts leading up the east facing face should be evident from the base of "Batteries" in the upper gully area. The bolted line is about 30 - 50' to the left (south) of the top pitch of "Sublime Line."

Protection

IF you choose the gully/chimney first pitch you'll need gear, otherwise it's bolted and you could probably supplement with a small cam or two at the top.

I really enjoyed this route. Traversed in from the top of SL pitch 1. Lesser quality rock than SL, but more varied climbing than the standard LD horizontals and pockets. Good stuff. Nov 8, 2015
