Description

This is a fantastic route that ascends a rock spine for what seems like forever. Solid and clean, this is the route to do if you are able to climb the grade. The leader can bail right to the Trench Warfare rap anchor at 90' to break up Excalibur into two pitches. This is not recommended though because 1) it's more fun to just keep going & going and 2) the belayer is going to get bombed with anything coming down while belaying at the Trench Warfare rap anchor.

Location

Left side of the Coethedral formation. At the time of this writing, a wood sign at the base of Excalibur identifies it.

Getting down from the top of Excalibur is obvious and easy. Rappel with a 60m rope to the Trench Warfare rap anchor (climber's right). One more rappel gets you to the ground.

Protection

28 lead bolts and a Fixe carabiner sport anchor.
