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!
On the right side of Long Lane, start at a slab of big rounded flakes with a low first bolt and high second. Progress is usually easy, but the crux takes some concentration, especially without the back/side step while trying to go through the roof. Mostly easier ground til you reach a long reach from a deep thin flake 3/4 up. It actually shares a lot of the same moves as well as the anchor for Pocket Dihedral. The anchors are very awkward to clip, as they are set out of reach above the last ledge. You have to do an extra awkward move to get up to them. An excellent candidate for a permanent rappel anchor.
Lone Lane, right side, second from the end. Next to Skyhook.
