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!
DescriptionStart at the large horizontal, and crank up to the first bolt. Follow the dihedral passing 2 more bolts. The first crux is going from the stemmy dihedral to the face, especially so during high humidity.
After the fourth bolt, move to the arete from the overhang and continue up past another roof to the anchors.
Originally rated 11.c, the route has since been downgraded to 11.a. A long reach is helpful for the dihedral, which still hoses me from time to time, while most find the first overhang to be the crux.
