Description

The free version of the old aid route Right on, Solid, & Far Out (A2+). Stem up the corner on good gear to a rest. Nest as many RPs as you can, clip the fixed pin (may or may not be good for a fall), and muscle through the V9-10 boulder problem above to a good ledge. Belay here on small-medium gear or just continue to the top of the cliff (5.10 R). Heads-up belay recommended due to ledgy terrain below the crux.

Location

Left of Inhibitor, right of King Me

Protection

small-medium cams and RPs (especially offset HBs)

Wow... I thought it was the old pin because it was quite rusty... I broke it in October of 2013.

Bottom line: Fixed pins rust and break... Apr 3, 2014
He replaced the pin in 2012 for the FFA (the old one failed in a fall). So this happened in October 2013? Damn, even shorter life span than expected. Does the pin look like it broke in half due to corrosion? At this point a pin placement in that spot has failed at least 3 times over the last few years... maybe time to consider something more lasting. Mar 29, 2014

It was the old fixed pin... I'm only 145 lbs and I snapped that sucker ;)... Luckily I had some decent protection below me... I presume Andrew never fell on it while working on the route...

I will keep my half of the pin and tell my grandchildren about it lol. Mar 28, 2014
A pin you placed or the (formerly) fixed one?
It sheared in half?? That sucks. Mar 26, 2014

It was my first aid route (Sketchy). Anyhow, I clipped the pin, bounced and it failed. I took a daisy whip on some rp brassies. It was a great experience! It was in October of 2013. Mar 26, 2014
When did that happen? Story? Jan 27, 2014

Bounce-testing the pin caused it to shear in half, resulting in a funny story. Oct 28, 2013
