Far right to left traversing line on the Indirect Crag. First bolt found just right of the crack system for Indirect Action. Follow traverse up and left as you past 8 nicely and safely placed bolts. As you near the top the traverse piddles out and you top our with a more direct line to chain anchors. Easily lowered with 70m rope. Short ropes, beware as you lower your partner as they are nearly out of sight to your far left and over 5.12 terrain.


Far right side of Indirect Crag and right of crack system.


8 bolts, chain anchors (shared with Indirect Action)

It's possible this route could be considered the "unknown" route #851 in the Troy Mayr guidebook. Although, consensus is not 5.9 as stated more like 5.7. Nov 3, 2012

This is a fun route with a lot of traversing. I led this with a 60 meter rope and once I was lowered to the ground, we still had about 40 feet left over, so no problem to climb this with a 60 meter rope. Feb 26, 2014
This route should be named "72 Hour Hold". It is the right variation of Indirect Action (separate 3 bolts to the anchors). Route 4 in the picture. Mar 9, 2016
I just climbed this yesterday and loved it! Super fun traverse but the info on this route is out of date. Bolts #6 and #7 don't exist according to the picture on here. I clipped #5 before it separates with Indirect Action and wasn't able to clip again until the supposed #8 (actually #6) bolt before the chains. Really easy solid jugs and good feet all the way up but it was run out at least 20 feet in between. I would highly recommend steering left and finishing on Indirect Action if you want to be better protected. Just a heads up! Oct 9, 2017
