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!
DescriptionThe five meter crack on the northeast-facing wall of Music Hall reveals the start of Wedding Route. Getting off the ground and into where it becomes a shallow right-facing dihedral is the crux. Follow the crack, with intermittent horizontal cracks, until it disappears, then continue up through blocky bands and beautiful quartz patches towards the large, obvious ledge. This route will have endless traffic on any kind of decent weekend, so either get here early or prepare to stand in line.
This route has been bolted and rebolted previously, but both generations of bolts have been removed, and the route is now regarded as a trad climb.
From the anchors at the big ledge, you can continue to the top via a 5.4 ramp (I call it The Honeymoon Extension) or up the juggy overhanging face via Small Triangle more aptly translated as "The Mistress".
