Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. Details
DescriptionTHE route at crazy horse. Head up the giant pillar in the center of the cave, follow the bolts towards the arete before making an airy traverse into a groove. Extremely 3d climbing lends itself to creative rests. Pumpy and steep climbing takes you to the anchor/belay for the second pitch. The second pitch takes a hanging traverse before breaking out into the sun. Double 60 meter ropes will allow a single rappel to a point where you can make an exposed scramble to safety.
LocationThe route heads up the giant pillar in the center of the cave. The approach is short, but complicated.
Start at the upper cave overlook. Make a short rappel from the promontory. Walk away from the main cave, taking care not to fall in the giant shaft. Head up and right through the back of the cave till you reach an arch. Two rappel bolts in the roof of the arch allow for a short rappel (about 40') to the first belay of the climb. Committing from the start.
