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!
Description [Suggest Change]
Start in the chimney on the easternmost portion of the Discipline Area. Shimmy up the chimney onto a ledge. Maneuver through a tricky section off the deck which can be made easier by using features off to either side. Step right and continue up the disappearing crack. Protection becomes scarce, but it's slabby and there are huge face holds. Top out and belay on gear. Traverse left and rappel from any of the anchors at the top of Long Arete.
