Climb smooth face/blunt arete on left side of the cliff. Climb past/over small roof to strenuous slightly overhanging section on side pulls to easier climbing above.


Left most route on main wall. Below boulder guarding upper canyon.

this route is currently missing its third bolt. i left a carabiner on the second bolt to mark it. see my comment on the area page for more info. Feb 7, 2017

I see from the cover sheet to the Ninja climbs that there was a bolt pull-out, and some question as to the integrity of the others. When we climbed this wall Weds, all the hangers but one were removed. Since the muzzies and anchors are still in place, are they considered "good," and is top roping this fun climb still safe with the present anchors?

Thanks! Mar 1, 2017

NO!!!! Do not consider any of those anchors safe!!! Mar 2, 2017
Thanks for the prompt answer, Eric. If climbing here, we'll set up our own anchor system on long runners. Mar 3, 2017

Is "any of those anchors" referring to all of the anchors at this whole crag? Shame to see bolts popping. Jan 1, 2018

Within a week of hearing a report of the bolt pulling Kristina and I stripped all the hangers except one which someone had stripped/rounded off the nut a bit so we could not get it with the adjustable wrench we brought, eventually we will get back there and remove the last hanger. The anchors are shared with the adjacent route so we did not chop them. I am not concerned by any of the other bolts at the crag as the bolt that failed was in the worst piece of rock on the route with the worst rock quality at the crag. We also inspected the rest of the bolts on the wall that day. It was a mistake to put the route up given the rock quality but at the time we enjoyed the challenge as this was unquestionably the hardest route at the crag and the hardest route either of us had climbed when we first sent it.

The route in question has been chopped, however, if you are concerned about other bolts at the crag then please choose to climb somewhere else, as to me this seems a better outcome than the alternative, us stripping the whole crag, which we are open to if the will of the climbing community matches the sentiment Eric expressed above.
