Description

When I posted The Ancient of Days, I misspoke. There are more easy bolts routes up here. This ONE. This route is nowhere near as good as that one but might as well have a lap while your here....

This was originally done without the bolts at 5.8x, then a few were added, now there are about 6 and an anchor. The rock on this one is a little dirty and crumbly but plenty safe for the beginner leader with the gym style bolting... .

Start right off the Aqueduct trail. The first couple bolts are next to a crack (the horror!!), but the rock quality is pretty poor and these chossy placements would be the last ones you'd find anyway.... Move up and right toward a rounded arete and cruise to the anchor. The crux is near the bottom unless you stay on the left of the arete at the top, which feels a little contrived since there are no holds. There isn't even a foot hold near the anchor to clip from. Overall, this route is on the verge of good. It almost achieves a cool position on the arete, but the excitement is diffused when you realize you could traverse off to the ground at any point.

There is another line that goes straight up from the start to meet this anchor. It looks even easier than this route. It looks like it has been cleaned, so I wouldn't be surprised if a few more bolts appear on this line too. Until then, top-rope it if you need more easy mileage.

Location

This is the furthest route right/West on the Right Mountain Rose crag.

Protection

About 6 bolts and anchor.
