DescriptionA four pitch route that shares the start of the Wasteland.
If you are interested in a topo for this route, feel free to PM me and I will send you one. You can also get one by registering at the toofasttopos website.
Pitch 1 (5.9, 160'): Start at the grungy corner that the Wasteland also begins at. Climb up and left on to the ledge, then work your way up to an obvious thread-through with many slings on it. Clip the slings and stem through a 15' high concave section protected by two bolts. Follow a pillar-like feature straight up toward two trees. Belay at a bolted anchor between the trees on a comfortable ledge.
Pitch 2 (5.9, 120'): Climb up and a bit right following bolts protecting a slab. As the slab ends you will climb through some broken rock to a ledge. Only a few pieces are needed on this pitch.
Pitch 3 (5.10-, 170'): Work your way up past four bolts, then move left to a ramp. Climb the ramp and continue up on bolts and gear to big chickenheads. Traverse directly right (above the first big roof on the Wasteland) to a two bolt anchor.
Pitch 4 (5.10-, 160'): Climb up and slightly right to a bolt on the right side of a small roof. Clip it and traverse right toward a steep-looking corner. Get into the corner (the crux) and climb it to its end. Clip a final bolt and climb another 30' of easy ground to a two bolt anchor at the top.
Use the Wasteland rappels to descend.
