Description

Climb the gully/chimney past 5 bolts. For the most part, this is an easy scramble. The bolts serve to keep the rope running smoothly and out of the garbage in the gully.

After the 5th bolt and right before a chockstone, begin climbing up the line of bolts on the steep face to your left. The climbing is sustained from here but well-protected. A mix of balancy and slightly awkward laybacking and smearing on steep rock will keep you on your toes. Halfway up there is a Thank God flake to grab onto and feel good about.

Location

This is one of the leftmost routes on the southeast face of Wipeyur Buttress. Look for the major gully from which multiple steep bolted lines originate.

Protection

11 bolts plus top anchor.

I feel like this would be super popular if it wasn't five bolts up the gully. Once the route actually starts, it is really enjoyable if not a little heady despite the super safe bolting. May 10, 2018
