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!
Description06/2017 UPDATE: Unfortunately this route has been found to have very unstable rock. Hints of what could happen are laying all around the base of the wall. The anchor bolts have been chopped.
Old route description:
Identify an obvious clean dihedral below a roof on the far right of the Basement, after hopping up into the boulder-strewn area. The anchor is located some 20 feet above the roof. Traverse through the low overhang and into the dihedral, then jam up into the roof, out the corner, and pull the crux which is getting up into the broken ledges above. Cruise from here to the anchor.
