Description

Ranger Bolts younger but more difficult brother.

Starts up a 5.12- over hang which leads to a very easy slab. After the slab the main crux comes at you pretty quick with big moves, small slopey crimps and some akward foot movements. Past this is a mix of 5.11 to 5.12- climbing with rests to a very thin repoint crux right before the chains. You can continue to the tippy top from there or rap.

Location

This route is on the far left side of west face between Ranger Bolts and Cataract Corner.

Protection

Seventeen bolts to the top of The Monolith. Shares the anchor with Ranger Bolts.

Heads up: If you're planning to rap in from the summit of Monolith, or top out and lower off the summit chains, you'll need a 70m.

A 60m does reach the ground from the route anchor, ~30 feet from the summit chains. So, a pendulum over for an intermediate rap station is also an option. Feb 13, 2017
