Description

Banana Bypass shares the first 3 bolts with Last Banana (look for yellow hangers), then traverses right for 4 bolts over steepening terrain. The final 7 bolts negotiate a corner system and a few roofs. This near perfect route is respected as one of Skaha's best at the grade!

Due to the traversing nature of the route, consider either having a follower clean on top rope, or cleaning first half while lowering and cleaning the bottom half on top rope to minimize the swing.

Location

Look for the yellow hangers of Last Banana. Shares the first 3 bolts then trends right on a different line of bolts.

Protection

14 bolts, anchor with chains.
