Access Issue: Bolt Failures - Donations Help Details
Accelerated corrosion that targets stainless steel bolts (SCC) has caused multiple failures, including both anchor bolts on a route that a climber was being lowered off of. Please read the BOLTS note on the main page. You can also help the cause by visiting the Bivy during your stay and giving QX some reds, whites, or if youre feeling generous, some BLUES!
Start at the lowest point, which is sometimes filled with water, where a diagonal and vertical crack come together. Move up this to the overhang, then through big horizontals to a small pedestal. The bold traditional finish is to go up and around the arete, onto the face (slight runout), and mantle up to the anchor. You can also move around to the left for an easier finish via Detention.
On the separate pinnacle on the west side of the Discipline Area. Locate the intersecting diagonal and horizontal cracks in the middle of this feature.
