Access Issue: 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!
The crux is getting off the ground. Place a piece as high as you can reach, then high-step and lieback-jam to establish yourself in the crack. Follow this semi-sustained bit, trying not to cheat when it turns into a bit of a rampy dihedral. Then you're on a ledge big enough to sleep a small army. Continue up towards the orange face split by an obvious, slightly overhanging crack. Using face holds and jams, send this short bit of sweetness until you're below the belay ledge. Pop some gear, mantel up (5.8), and you're done.
