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!
The route furthest left on the Old Man Wall; right of Hermit Crab and some other bolted route, but left of Lava Tube. It's also the easiest route on this wall. Make an awkward start far left of the first bolt, then move back right. At the bulge, the crack may seem tempting, but stay on the bolt line. Crux it on good crimps. The fourth clip will likely be made at your hip and far to your right. Haul through overhangs on big jugs, mantel a glued flake, and make a final balancy move to the anchors.
