Description

This takes a line of strength up the blank section of wall between Holdless Horror and Bull Dozier. The first pitch is long and has many bolts. The difficulties gradually lessen as you work your way up the face. There is a bolted anchor just before a large ledge, or you can take a seat on the big ledge (no anchor) to belay. The second pitch climbs past a few bolts on easy terrain to another anchor. One more pitch of 4th class leads to the top.

Rap the route or walk off right.

Sporty climbing on great knobs. Long initial pitch. Sep 23, 2013
Ever have a bolt you have clipped fall out after you climbed past it? Jul 5, 2014

Wait, what again Jeff? Wedge or sleeve? Did it wiggle in the hole when you clipped it? Either way, yikes. Jul 16, 2014
Hey John!
The route was put up on lead with 1/4" bolts. This particular bolt I think was a rawl split 1/4"er. I clipped it and climbed about 10' past. I gave the rope a big flip as it wasn't running straight and the draw from the last bolt dropped. At first I thought it was operator error but when my wife cleaned it the hanger anD part of the bolt were attached. I actually thought it was kinda funny as the fa party was there and kind of embarrassed. All the bolts were replaced by the fa party with 3/8". Jul 16, 2014

Agreed. Two flattened bolts on this thing. If I had read the above post wouldn’t have gotten on it. I have heard this tends to happen in the Sierra based on the pressure from sheets of ice forming on top of the rock... take it or leave it. Doubtful it was from rock fall cause the hangers are not nicked or marked at all.
Stranger danger- I hope you enjoy the carabiners I bailed off on this rig in late June. They are rightfully yours since you actually sent the thing. Jul 30, 2018
