Location

In the Manana area, route furthest right. Around the arete above Golden Labs.

Protection

7 bolts, a 2" cam

An underrated pitch, in my opinion. This is the bolt line visible from the top of Slot Machine. If you do that climb, hop on this. Jun 4, 2013

the only noteworthy thing, on this otherwise bland pitch, is that it is really poorly bolted for a modern route. expect bolts really close together on easy trivial climbing, and a poorly protected crux section with really ugly fall potential. Aug 5, 2013

I agree with Slim, one runout above the only place to bust your ankles. I'd assume it was bolted on lead by the nature of the bolting.

Also, tie a knot in your rope before lowering. It's a long pitch, you might need to lower off into the gully on the right if you don't have a 70m. Jul 23, 2015

We had a 60m rope and we had no issues with rappelling. We landed just where we started (just below and slightly right of the first bolt).
Bolts did NOT feel too close together - this was slab that seemed more difficult than typical multi-pitch lines in Darrington. Aug 29, 2017
