Description

The wildest and most exposed pitch around.

a quick scramble and 60 feet of 5.6 arete climbing take you to a horizontal break with bail anchors. Take a deep breath, clip the bail anchors with a long runner, and cruise out 15 feet of well featured HORIZONTAL ARETE CLIMBING, on the "hatchet blade". The prow stays around 45 degrees for another 15 feet, and then remains vertical to the very top of the beautiful formation. One of so many inspiring Skinner routes.

Location

This line takes the very edge of the hatchet blade shaped prow at Suicide Point.

Protection

12 quickdraws and maybe one long runner. rings at the top.

You can lower with a 60, depending on where you stand to belay. KNOT THE END of your rope anyway.

Don't leave hanging draws here, or at least make sure they're dull colored. see comment.

people literally shot the bolts off this thing, damaging the rock in the process. I've replaced all the bolts on wind drinker and hurricane hannah with quality stainless hardware. DONT leave hanging draws on this one, as it's a feature that is easily visible from a popular 4wd hunting access road. Nov 5, 2017
