This variation had been looked at for some time. Despite interest it had never been bolted.... Well, now it is. Three shiny bolts protect the new and somewhat direct start to 'Wrinkles in Time.' Climb the suprisingly fun, overhanging arete to the second or (better for rope drag) third bolt on 'Wrinkles in Time.'

It is a glorified boulder problem with the added bonus of climbing the rest of 'Wrinkles.' I hope people will enjoy it. For hardmen sportos out there wanting to work on it, I sincerely hope you find it to be fun. However, please keep in mind that it shares chains with the best warm-up in the area and a popular route for people of all abilities.

The grade I suggested may be totally off. That's about what we felt it was after doing it a few times.


It is just right of the regular start to 'Wrinkles in Time.' You begin by climbing the first bit of the 'Underworld Traverse' in Rossiter's old book.


3 QDs, a #1 or 0.75 Camalot for the start, and a few runners for the third or fourth bolt on 'Wrinkles.' A stick-clip would be useful if you lacked the appropriate gear, or clip the first bolt when you come down from 'Wrinkles.'
