Description

This is the fourth bolted route encounteded on the east wall as you hike up the slot canyon leading to the little narrows. I have not climbed the route so the rating is just what I thought it looked like. If anyone has any more info please post it in the comments so that I can update the route.

The bolts for this route are way over the top of the ledge. Or, you can go right after the last bolt and connect to the two bolts at the top of Lacy Swiss. Not a super fun route in my opinion, but I'll go back because it's close. Some of the bolts at the bottom are pretty mobile which scares me a bit, but they seemed solid. Oct 23, 2017

Seems like this is pretty easy if you stem off the wall behind you. Is that considered "off route?"

Also, I didn't find the anchors. I topped out and found two rappel bolts about 10 feet back from the ledge.

Did I miss something? This is the route just to the left of Lacy Swiss right? Apr 8, 2015

I climbed this route in late 2012 about 4 days after a rain storm and sent the flake down on my buddy belaying me and passers-by, sorry for the extremely hard crux move now... May 8, 2014

Nate, you are a brave man trusting those thin bolts in what is in some places on these routes not much more than compacted sand! Felt like about 10d to me too (on top rope). Jan 24, 2013

there are two ways to climb this route... you can stay to the left of the bolt line and the route goes 9+ or easy 10, depending on height. the other option is to follow right of the bolt line. This is the much harder way and looking at how it was bolted, i believe how it was initially setup. Note if you are going right. It probably went 10d, however there is a sandy side-pull flake that you used to get yourself up through the crux... this flake broke off and is gone... this route now goes a lot harder than before. Also, still really sandy, belayer may want to stand farther away to not get sand in the eyes. Both ways are fun, so try both ways! Jan 23, 2013
