Description

First route that requires either a 70m rope, double rope rap or a walk off. Shares first bolt with lost feather then works right into slabby section, crimps then big flake, small bulge then some nice jugs. Great variety of climbing, very sustained and decently long.

Location

Shares start with Lost Feather just right of the cave which has Black Feather. Another great climb.

Protection

I believe it to be 12 bolts + anchors.

Don't miss the 4th bolt as the route breaks right after bolt 3. The fourth bolt on Pow Wow it is about 5 feet right of the 4th bolt on lost feather. Jan 30, 2017

What an amazing route. Best I've done at the ruins. If you nail the beta it's 10 c/d. The long traverse right makes for some interesting fall scenarios. Very commiting because of this. Very thoughtful and technical. The two roof pulls are great. An absolute must do if your at the crag. Along with techno savage, medicine bag, and black feather this section of the crag seems to be the best concentration of climbs as far as quality goes. Absolutely love this one. 12 bolts plus two for the anchors Jan 28, 2015
