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!
A very physical route. You will be arms deep in this thing no matter how you pull it off. It's also very sharp, so long sleeves and/or tape gloves are recommended. Start up the dihedral with fists and hands, using feet on both walls and legs in the crack. Make an awkward exit around a big flake and up to a nice ledge.
Lower Dragon Ridge of First Cave. South-facing wall. Left-leaning dihedral just before you turn the corner to Grand Auditorium.
