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 up the highly-featured slab about 15 feet to the roof. Pull very positive holds to swing a heel hook and surmount the face. From here, you can immediately head up and right, or try to stay directly on the bolt line. The latter is far more challenging, though not 11c as the guidebook suggests. Eventually the holds will disappear on the face though, while the features in the crack diminish as well. The crux is pulling off a small crimp thing, from which you make a simple final move and you're on the ledge.
Beware of wasps!

Rap from the anchor.
