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!
Start up easy ground to a big horizontal that cuts through the whole wall. Continue up blocky steps to the vertical wall divided by a fractured crack system with some vegetation. Send this crack through a series of sustained moves to another horizontal. Climb easy blocks to a ledge. From here, step to the left side and continue up wide crack... OR get up into the thin dihedral and punch out the roof... OR step right at the roof, up and out the other side, and then back left along a horizontal. All routes end at the top of a pillar. Belay up second from trad anchor, then belay the traverse to the descent anchors 30 feet up and left.
Start in the middle of the Black Wall. Look up and find the outline of Taiwan etched by cracks in the black-orange stone halfway up. This route goes up the right side of the Taiwan.
