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!
DescriptionA continuation from the anchor above Cunning Linguist and Fillet Show.
The first ascent route takes you straight up the face to a thin crack. Delicate moves on delicate pro take you to a grassy ledge with scrappy rock, and some low-5th up to the ledge.
The "better" variation starts just left of the anchor. Protect carefully here - some of the rock looks suspect. Pull through up to the slopey ledge and a rather intimidating position. Take a deep breath, then grope for holds as you move out right, get some solid pro, and pull up to big holds. The rock here is super sharp and fragile, but the going is easy. Scramble up to the ledge.
This anchor is also for BA Insanity. A single 60m will easily get you down.
